They Carry Us With Them: The Great Tree Migration

by Chelsea Steinauer-Scudder and Jeremy Seifert

Forests have been migrating in response to climate since time immemorial, but the twenty-first-century climate crisis has greatly diminished the ability of trees to move effectively. This multimedia feature explores four stories of tree migration in Maine and what is at stake as forests shift away from the ecological and human communities they have long inhabited.

Editorial Note

It has always been a radical act to share stories during dark times. They are regenerative spaces of creation and renewal. As we experience a loss of sacred connection to the earth, we share stories that explore the timeless connections between ecology, culture, and spirituality.
