Did You Know?


Shortly after the final cut of the film was edited and post-production complete, a lightning strike irreparably damaged the hard drive the final cut of the film was stored on, completely destroying the film. Director Michael Pleckaitis was forced to start from scratch and completely re-edit the film. The process was so time-consuming and frustrating, that he never wanted to direct make another film. As a result, he never made the planned third film in the "tree-logy" - "Trees 3: Regeneration". He took a three-year hiatus before beginning production on "Silent". See more »

Funny. Really, really funny!
14 November 2004 | by bravabrutSee all my reviews

This movie is a must see. Watch Trees then watch Root of all evil. You will be on the ground laughing. "Horshack" Ron Palillo did a great job as a wimpy rich man. The rangers wife did great snubbing the husband for the money man. She was awesome. The lumberjacks were hilarious running around trying to kill killer trees in the streets and at the gym. The big guy Fang was a tough customer, and his partner Petey was pretty funny too. He farted everywhere he went. Cheers to the hottie playing the agent. Vavavoom! The graphics were totally cool too. The last time I went camping I was very cautious about how the wind blew and which way the trees were migrating. Those sons of saplings ate my picnic.
