Discover Archangel Ancient Tree Archive

One of my readers sent me a link to a video about the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive. After watching, I had to share this amazing project with you. Below is a snippet from the organization's web site about them and the video link. Enjoy! ~m

Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is a non-profit organization that locates and propagates the world’s oldest and most iconic trees. We are creating living libraries of old-growth tree genetics, and through traditional agricultural propagation, cloning these iconic and hardworking trees for the purpose of functional forestation.

The mission of Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is to:
Propagate the world’s most important old growth trees before they are gone.
Reforest the Earth with the offspring of these trees to benefit all life through the natural filtering process of the trees to increase oxygen, sequester carbon dioxide, and provide beneficial aerosols and medicines.
Archive the genetics of ancient trees in living libraries around the world for the future.
