This short from Dan Childs and Nick Werber beautifully captures the way one community is learning to live in balance with their environment. For decades the people in the Manu region of Peru have used slash-and-burn as their primary farming technique. Realizing that there would soon be no forest left if this practice continued, Reynaldo Ochoa began experimenting with different approaches to farming the land. He's now dedicated to reforesting the region and teaching residents more sustainable alternatives to deforestation, like agroforestry and permaculture.

Pine, Pinus Sylvestrus
The Pine is beloved for all its products, from wood for building the traditional Norwegian houses and furniture, to firewood, products like paper, and matches. It is also used because of its lovely relaxing and uplifting smell, available via essential oils, used in aroma therapy for their health benefits, and also as a remedy in the products of Dr. Edward Bach. The needles are used for making tea. Pine buds are also very healthy, not only for animals (squirrel) and birds, but also for human beings.
