The Man Who Planted Trees

This is a story of new life and replenishment in a place which seems desolate and hopeless.

An allegorical tale by Jean Giono, it was published in 1953. In 1987 it was released as a short animated film and apparently won an Academy Award.

Having seen it as a small child, it has happily haunted me ever since.
