More Than Just Parks

Trees are magical. They live exactly as we live, but differently at the same time. They breathe, but not as we do. They grow, they become old and then they die but they complete these steps slowly as we do. And this case, being slow is better (and more magical) than being fast.

Telling the story of a tree is fascinating, but it could be boring as well. I mean, a tree puts its roots in a place and in that place it remains, until the end of its life (well, we hope so). Other trees grow near it, people pass through that place while they’re living their stories, and the tree still stays there, staring at the sun and working for you.

But some guys are working for trees (a part for Treedom, obviously) and so they set up a project called More Than Just Parks which is telling through pictures and videos trees stories.

This is video is the culmination of several weeks spent exploring Redwood National and State Parks. Redwood National and State Parks in Northern California are home to the tallest trees in the world, the mighty Redwood, which can reach staggering heights of over 360ft and weigh more than 500 tons. These parks feature magical forests, miles of spectacular beaches, stunning overlooks, and the largest herd of Roosevelt elk on the planet.
