Tom’s new film asks ‘Can we Plant Enough Trees to Save us from A Warming Planet?’

‘Wood for the Trees’ is a series from Tom Barnes and Charly Le Marchant. Tom is managing director of Vastern Timber, and Charly is a film-maker and sustainability educator. They’re both passionate about woods and trees, and since 2019 they’ve worked together to make films about the future of UK forests.

In these short films Tom and Charly ask awkward questions to explore the risks and opportunities for UK woodlands. Series two takes a closer look at some of the themes considered so far, and features beautiful animation that helps make sense of the numbers.

The latest film asks ‘Can we plant enough trees to save us from a warming planet?’
