In The Trees is the second studio album by Canadian rock band The Watchmen. With hits "Boneyard Tree", "All Uncovered", and "Lusitana", this was the band's breakthrough release in their home country of Canada. Videos for both "Boneyard Tree" and "All Uncovered" received heavy play on MuchMusic.

The album was certified Platinum in Canada by the Canadian Recording Industry Association on May 31, 1995.[2] To date, this is the band's only Platinum album in Canada.

Following the tour which supported the band's debut McLaren Furnace Room, bassist Pete Loewen decided to leave the band. He was replaced by Newfoundlander Ken Tizzard.

At this time, singer Daniel Greaves began to become more comfortable with his songwriting ability. Because of this, only three of the album's songs were credited to guitarist Joey Serlin.

The strength and success of the album provided the band with a nomination for Group of the Year at the 1995 Juno Awards. The award went to their MCA Records labelmates, The Tragically Hip.
