You can watch the award winning animated story of Elzeard Bouffier and his singlehanded transformation of a desolate landscape in Alps en Provence during the first half of the 20th century here:

Plot spoiler- this is not a true story but if we all planted a few trees, the results would be just as hopeful.

I did enjoy this movie, thank you Steve. It is a great inspiration. It makes me happy to look around at the more than a dozen new trees I planted this year and imagine what they will look like in five, ten, fifteen, twenty years…..

One of my adorable sons just brought me two slices (my portion) of an apple he harvested from his tree today!

I share the same thoughts like Robin and Debbie above. Fantastic movie.
