Free To Grow is a short documentary about the dedicated practices within British Columbia’s reforestation and silviculture industries. An homage to Canadian filmmaker Philip Borsos, the visuals and musical score follow the life of a tree, from being sown in the nursery to reaching free-to-grow status, a designation set by the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia.
