Humboldt County's Pacific Lumber Company is cutting down the state's most primeval ancient redwood forest. In Mendocino County, where old-growth redwoods are long gone, multinational timber giant Louisiana Pacific provokes a storm of outrage by converting its vast redwood forests to fiber plantations.

Are timber companies allowed to do whatever they want with the trees on their land? The Forest Through the Trees asks both impassioned environmentalists and committed timber workers as they fight over the future of one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the country.
