Saving a Cathedral
Wild Excellence Films' priority project currently is a film about the ancient trees of Cook Forest State Park, Pennsylvania, which are under attack from the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid, a destructive insect that gravely threatens the eastern hemlock. Preliminary shooting has begun and we expect the film to be ready for release in late 2016.
The 8,500-acre Cook Forest State Park was once called the “Black Forest” because of the thick evergreen canopy. Its “Forest Cathedral” of towering white pines and hemlocks is a National Natural Landmark.
