America’s Forests with Chuck Leavell

Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell is combining two of his life interests – music and trees – into a new national television documentary, America's Forests with Chuck Leavell.

On April 1, 2017, OPB aired the series’ pilot episode. It focused on a trend toward building tall wood buildings in Portland with innovative mass timber products; mountain biking and wildfire prevention in Bend; and habitat restoration in the Siuslaw National Forest on the Oregon Coast. Leavell hosts and narrates the program as well as providing the musical accompaniment.
