Rekindling our connection


Tree Humans is Love

A reminder of the connection.
Between you and trees.
Between trees and you.


"When you hug a tree you are hugging yourself" - Ram Dass

Treehumans aims to remind people that we are everything. We are every part of the earth and each other. That reminder isn't always something we can think about. It's something the body just knows. We aim to remind in whatever way works, from a place of love. Through word of mouth, words on screens, images, videos, documentaries and whatever else feels true.

Co-creating a reminder in the form of a documentary.

A reminder to ourselves that we are one and the same with nature and it is our true role to be stewards of the land. Treehumans with your help is becoming a #documentree. 

We’d like to allow this project to grow collaboratively just like a forest would. With all the biodiversity coming through to help create a growing and incredible ecosystem. We want people involved in the process at every stage and step.

How can you help?



Helping trees starts with being kind to ourselves. If you feel compelled, try this exercise and you'll straight away be helping in ways nobody could ever imagine.

Thank yourself for being here today.
Say thank you to all the trees out there just for being there.
Say thank you to all the life living today right now amongst those forests.
Thank and send love to all other humans on the planet. There is no us and them. 
Spend time in nature when you next can.


How can you help stage 1 of the #documentree?

Our objective is to discover and record stories that connect us. We’d like to do that with minimal impact and costs for this. We'll need your help and love.
