Rikuzentakata - Kibou no Ippon-matsu

Rikuzentakata's Kibou no Ippon-matsu, or One Pine Tree of Hope, was the sole standing 200 year old pine out of the 70,000 that once made up the Takata-Matsubara (高田松原) forest.  The fact that this single tree remained standing gave many people hope for the future.  Much effort went into trying to save the tree but as of late 2011, arborists determined that the salt water damage to the roots was too great.  The land had subsided in the area after the quake and the tree resides only 5 metres from an already eroded coast line.  The continued saturation of the roots in salt water was basically poisoning the tree to a slow death.  As a result, the valiant effort to save the tree was abandoned.  Months earlier though, grafts from the pine had been taken with the purpose of producing many seedlings which will be planted in the future.  The pine tree is no longer producing any resin (it is drying out), it's needles have turned brown, and any pine cones are discolored.

This video is dedicated to this single pine tree and the people of Tohoku Japan.

This is an excellent short film by Phillip Bloom which at least to me, captures the essense of daily scenes in Tokyo.
