During the first weeks of the program, we were given the task to chose a pine tree in the forest to cut down and use for our final project. The cutting of these trees is part of a plan the Parc de Collserola has, as other species of flora are actually threatened by the amount of pines. We were assigned to do a video, telling a story about our tree. To be honest, even though we need to cut trees to practice responsible forest management, it was hard to come to terms with this. This video is a reflection of just that.
