After many months of lockdown / separation, Giants in the Trees played together once again. Ascertaining where individuals moved about —or didn't— in the preceding weeks, we felt a convergence was safe. In this video, which is promoting the new film "The Dark Divide", we collaborate with Dr. Robert Michael Pyle, as part of a virtual panel presentation regarding the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. We perform our song "Sasquatch".

"The Dark Divide" stars David Cross and Debra Messing—coming November 10.

Here is my essay regarding his excellent book / study The Inevitable party
