Also featured is Hot Springs artist Linda Palmer who has spent years photographing and drawing these trees.  It is an original documentary which had a limited debut showing at the Clinton School in Little Rock two weeks ago and includes a brief but poignant sound bite by our own ANPS tree specialist Eric Sundell.  More information is available at, where there is a short video, a biography of Linda Palmer, and a photo gallery of the trees featured in the documentary.
