The Man Who Planted Trees

The Man Who Planted Trees

The Man Who Planted Trees is a wonderful story of one man who turned a deserted wasteland into an oasis. Undeterred by two World Wars, and without any thought of personal reward, Elzéard Bouffier a solitary shepherd tirelessly sowed his seeds in the hills of France where there was once nothing with his bare hands because that’s what he thought needed to be done.

This is a beautiful story about one man who made a difference because he thought it was the right thing to do. The animation of this video was drawn by hand, one page at a time and took years to finish. The quality of this video is quite poor in comparison to the DVD (Amazon Link), there is also a book (Amazon Link) of the same story available with over a quarter of a million copies sold. This story has inspired countless numbers of people around the world to take action and plant trees. I believe this is the key to starting the rehabilitation process of our planet!
