From the venerable oaks in Western forests to the emblematic baobabs of Africa, from the olive trees of the Mediterranean to the exotic palm trees, each species of tree is unique.

Trees have accompanied man since the dawn of time providing food, healing, shelter as well as wood for fire or building material. However, this relationship is proving contradictory moving from symbolic respect to senseless destruction.

In each episode several personalities, from scientists to park rangers, expose a species from its characteristics to its history and what it brings to man.
