The venerable trees

Guardians of a thousand year-old culture, the monkey puzzle tree of Chile and baobab of Senegal are venerable and venerated. Refuge of genies or incarnation of a spirit, they represent a powerful connection with nature and ancestors past. Sepulchre for one, saviour for the other, both inhabited by a mysticism.

Directed by: Yannick Cherel (season 2, France, 2017)
Narrated by: Jacques Gamblin.

The great survivors

In the Redwood Park in California, a giant sequoia escaped felling thanks to Julia Butterfly Hill. On the other side of the Pacific, a few hundred kilometres from Tokyo, a centuries-old juniper tree receives every care and attention from the bonsai master Shinji Suzuki. Two trees that illustrate nature's resilience.
