Every holiday season, hundreds of Christmas tree sellers from across North America descend upon the streets of NYC to ply their trade. Francois, a father of three from Quebec and seasonal "tree man," returns to the same Manhattan street corner every year to deliver the magic of the season. Now presented at Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space, the new documentary Tree Man explores Francois' yearly journey and the relationships that sustain him -- with his customers, his employees and the people of his adopted neighborhood. While he may sell trees for a living, it's his role as the neighborhood "tree man" that truly sustain him, giving meaning to his grueling month far from home.
