Speaking for Trees: A Film by Mark Borthwick is a DVD/CD package by the American singer/songwriter Cat Power (a.k.a. Chan Marshall), released on October 26, 2004.

The DVD contains footage of Cat Power singing and playing electric guitar in a forest at West Kill Mountain, upstate New York, filmed by British photographer Mark Borthwick in essentially a single, nearly two-hour static shot. It also features three short films by Borthwick, set to the songs "Maybe Not," Free" and "Half of You" from Cat Power's 2003 album, You Are Free.

The CD contains the single song "Willie Deadwilder," an 18-minute outtake from the You Are Free sessions featuring American singer/songwriter M. Ward on guitar. The song was reworked as "Willie," a six-minute track on Cat Power's 2006 album, The Greatest.
