PhxArt + FilmBar Presents: Intelligent Trees In Partnership With Trees Matter
Peter Wohlleben ('The Hidden Life of Trees') and Dr. Suzanne Simard (The University of British Columbia) present and show the seemingly unbelievable: How trees communicate and care for each other.
Trees are so much more than rows of wood waiting to be turned into furniture, buildings or firewood. They are more than organisms producing oxygen or cleaning the air for us. They are individual beings that have feelings, know friendship have a common language and look after each other. This documentary explores the various ways that trees communicate with each other- from a forester's observations as well as through the microscope of a scientist.
Afterwards, we will have a panel of local experts in their field to discuss their perspective of the documentary and how we can apply this knowledge to the Greater Phoenix Area:
- A tree expert
- An environmental advocate
- A city councilwoman
Moderator: Anne Reichman: Director, Sustainable Cities Network, Global Institute of Sustainability and Innovation
Panelist: Ginger Torres, Chair of the Urban Heat and Tree and Shade Subcommittee, Vice-Chair of the Environmental Quality and Sustainability Commission
Panelist: Steve Priebe, Horticulturist and tree expert
Panelist Member: Councilwoman Yassamin Ansari, Councilmember for City of Phoenix District 7
