Forgotten Forests film

posted on August 10, 2011

Sylva has produced a short film for the Forgotten Forests project run by Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

Entitled Britain’s forgotten forests, our film explains that many of the forests in Britain are moribund and suggests that  people are increasingly disconnected from them.  Written and presented by our CEO Gabriel Hemery, the film seeks to challenge people to see the forests on our doorsteps in a new light.
