Narrator Jamie Hanes's conversational style punctuated with grave notes fits perfectly with this environmental clarion call. Mathews focuses on western pine forests as a microcosm for the dangers to all native trees from fires, beetles, industry clear-cutting, environmentalists who refuse to allow any burning or logging, and the constantly climbing temperatures. Narrator Hanes conveys the awe of a raging fire that burns an entire town in a matter of minutes. Yet the evolutionary adaptation of the lodgepole pine requires that very fire to release pine cone seeds for propagation. TREES IN TROUBLE is so chock-full of fascinating stories and facts that it's occasionally hard to keep up, but the overall message on the dangers of climate change comes through loud and clear.
