The Life of Trees

the Life of Trees

Trees are essential for all life on Earth. They are among the largest and longest living organisms on Earth. To grow tall, the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory.

Trees also remove carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, from the air.

The Life of the Trees is an entertaining and educational full-dome experience that tells the fascinating story of trees. The story is presented by two quirky, animated characters: a ladybug called Dolores and a firefly called Mike. The characters and the settings have been chosen with the idea of using the full dome format in a fascinating visual way that perfectly supports the educational aspect of the show.
