The Georgia Forestry Commission is using the movie The Lorax to educate children about the importance of trees.
The movie opened today and there was a special screening for hundreds of Lee County elementary schoolers at the Albany theatre.
The movie tells the story of a land without any trees.
So forest rangers are giving seedlings to those who buy tickets to the movie.
Greg Findlay of the Georgia Forestry Commission said, "sustainability, that's what we're all about is we want to have trees for today and all the products like paper and lumber for building houses. But we also want to have products for the future."
Georgia has 24 million acres of forest and that the state actually has more trees now than it did 100 years ago, despite rapid growth in cities such as Atlanta.
