Carly Eubanks returns to Mineola to attend her aunt's funeral. She is touched by nostalgia when attending this event and spending time with family she hasn't seen in a while. She decides to drive down the street where she grew up in Mineola before catching her plane back to California. There, in front of her childhood home, she sees a work crew who are just about to cut down the tree she played in as a little girl. On a whim, Carly shimmies up the tree and settles into the branches telling all who will listen that she plans to stay there until the City Council abandons plans to destroy the trees in order to widen the road. With the help of an old high school boyfriend and her cousin, Carly chains herself to the tree and makes it her home for weeks during her protest to save the environment.
In the meanwhile, Carly's niece, Allison, begins a school project which entails writing to a pen pal in Scotland. Her pen pal is a lad named Logan, who is wheelchair bound. The boy's uncle, Duncan, works every year as an electrician at an annual event called the Enchanted Forest. The forest in Pitlochry, Scotland is transformed into a magic place with colored lights and music, story tellers and costumed fairies. The event brings tourists from all over the world.
The forest and the trees are very important to Duncan. He and Carly both have an affinity for nature and a love of green growing things. Now with her niece and his nephew they have a connection which just might bring them together.
