W.S. MERWIN: TO PLANT A TREE focuses on the extraordinary life and work of United States Poet Laureate, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner and environmental activist. Mr. Merwin, who has been accorded almost every major poetry prize, including the National Book Award, has dedicated himself over the last three decades to preserving and regenerating native plants and palms at his home, The Merwin Conservancy, a 19-acre ecological preserve located on the north shore of Maui, Hawaii, that encompasses one of the most comprehensive private collection of palms in the world. W.S. MERWIN: TO PLANT A TREE is a production of Cicala Filmworks in association with THIRTEEN Productions LLC for WNET.
