The Kid Should See This

Un albero un anno (One tree one year)

Watch more with these video collections:

A “special” beech tree kept under observation for a whole year by a concealed eye, which never closes. Four seasons unfolding around a crossroad of smells, signals and messages left behind by the extraordinary wildlife of the Apennines. What you see here is just a small part of this incredible experience.

In the past two years, we have understood that in the vastity of the forest each tree is unique. There are trees where to lay your eggs or where to find a safe cover; trees on which to look for food or, simply, to scratch your back and thus leave behind a trace of your passage.

Who knows how many of such trees are around…

Un albero un anno – One tree one year, from the Forest Beat of Italy’s Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise. Founded in 1922, the national park helps to preserve the Marsican brown bear and the Italian wolf, and helps protect native fauna and flora in the central Apennine Mountains.

Follow this with Bears in the forest: What goes on when you are not there, The ‘Bear Bathtub’ in Yellowstone National Park, and more animal cams. Plus: More videos in Italy.
