Trees in Trouble

Local filmmaker Andrea Torrice noticed trees painted with an “X” in Burnet Woods and was curious. Three years later, her investigation led to the documentary Trees in Trouble. Torrice chronicles why cities across the nation are losing their green canopy and shows how Cincinnati is working to solve its urban tree crisis. Taking Root and the Cincinnati Park Board host a local screening of Trees in Trouble and a reception to meet award-winning Torrice and experts featured in her film. With music by Cincinnati composer Brian Lovely, Trees in Trouble has local roots, but national importance.


7 p.m. (doors open 6:30 p.m.) Thursday. $25. 20th Century Theater, 3021 Madison Road, Oakley, treesintrouble.com.
