Peter Coyote (narrator): “How do you scale a giant whose lowest branches can be 200 feet off the ground?”

Steve Sillett: “If you’re lucky enough to get up into the crowns of one of these trees, it puts your own insignificant existence in perspective. It makes you realize that there’s something much greater than yourself, so much vaster than you.”
