Join us at City Hall for a very special, free Arbor Day viewing of Felled - Urban Lumber Documentary.
"Felled is a documentary film about giving new life to fallen urban trees.
Following a summer monsoon in suburban Tempe, Arizona, Silas and James come upon a fallen Aleppo Pine tree. As aspiring woodworkers, they’re inspired to save the tree from the landfill and craft it into something beautiful.
People love trees, and for good reason. Beyond their visual appeal, trees in urban areas offer wide-ranging benefits like purifying air, diverting storm water, and providing shade. However when these trees die they often end up in a landfill. By some estimates three-to-four billion board feet of potentially usable lumber is discarded as waste every year. Behind the scenes there is a growing movement of craftsmen, artisans and makers devoted to utilizing this neglected resource. Felled is a story about finding worth and beauty in these trees that others have thrown out as trash."
