The Witness Tree - Columbia Land Trust
Watch our new short film that highlights an ancient hemlock tree along the Grays River

On the banks of the Grays River, where salamanders crawl, salmon push upstream, and one ancient hemlock tree tells the story of change and resilience. What can this tree teach us about our iconic Northwest forests? What does the future hold for our communities and the watersheds on which we depend? From past history to the current history of working forests, it stands as a testament to the past, present, and future.

Columbia Land Trust presents its new short film, The Witness Tree, featuring Land Trust Stewardship Director Ian Sinks, Conservation Lead Lydia Mendoza, and renowned author & ecologist Dr. Robert Michael Pyle. Join us as we venture into the Grays River watershed to explore an ancient hemlock tree deeply interconnected to a broader web of life.
