"The Man Who Planted Trees"

"English Title: “The Man Who Planted Trees” (1987) French Title: “L'homme qui plantait des arbres.” It is an allegorical tale by French author Jean Giono, published in 1953. It tells the story of one shepherd's long and successful singlehanded effort to re-forest a desolate valley in the foothills of the Alps near Provence throughout the first half of the 20th century."
