Fragile Earth: Enemies of the Oak  (1989)

Life and death of an oak tree

Examining the delicate ecological balance this large deciduous tree generates, Enemies of the Oak is an intriguing portrayal of a year in the life of a mature English Oak.

With the impressive backdrop of the changing seasons, stunning technical photography from Sean Morris explores the three hundred insect species that inhabit and feed on this magnificent tree. Renowned for their thorough and academic approach to nature filming, Oxford Scientific Films brings to life a world fraught with enemies, offering an in-depth insight into the oak’s artful natural defenses.

Providing an absorbing glimpse into an ecosystem many of us overlook, Enemies of the Oak is a comprehensive account of a complex community.
