Plot SynopsisEdit

The Planeteers travel to the Northwest after hearing about an old growth forest which is literally disappearing into thin air. After Wheeler sets out to investigate, along with an attractive local teenage bird watcher, Linka spots a "flying saucer" but they then discover that Hoggish Greedly is the pilot. They discover Greedly's scam – "sucking up" five-hundred-year-old trees to make pressed board furniture.

Significant Moments and FactsEdit

This episode is notable as the only time an Eco-villain was able to neutralize Captain Planet without pollution, through a pure physical attack. Captain Planet has demonstrated the ability to withstand staggering amounts of physical force, so presumably this was only possible due to the fact that he had partially turned himself into wood, making him vulnerable to Greedly's Tree Trasher.
