Giant redwoods clean carbon from the air we breathe and make air new. The trees in these pictures have been doing it for nearly 3000 years.
We want to plant hundreds of saplings created from the genetic material of these giants in Puget Sound communities. More than a thousand have already been planted in southern Oregon.
Archangel creates tiny sprouts from the tissue collected from the tops of these Giants, which they use to grow saplings with the identical genetic structure of their parent tree. It is these saplings that are being planted by Puget Sound communities.
These saplings are the work of Archangel Ancient Tree Archive.
The planet needs these Redwoods and the Redwoods need new habitats because of their changing northern California habitat.
Help Save the GIANTS
Moving the Giants to Puget Sound is a project that has been over a year in the making. A great deal of effort and expense have gone into harvesting the clone material, archiving it and preparing it for reforestation in Puget Sound. Your contribution will help take us over the top. With your help, residents of Puget Sound will someday be able to look up in wonder at these Giants in their own backyard.
Archangel Ancient Tree Archive* needs your help to continue its groundbreaking work. A contribution of $50 helps to create and plant one Coast Redwood. A contribution of any size helps Archangel Ancient Tree Archive carry out its mission of producing and delivering these giant trees to improve the future of our planet.
Park districts have already identified where these saplings can be planted and grow into “New” Old Growth Giants once again. Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will thank us for this. Help make that a reality by contributing to this fundraiser so that Puget Sound communities can be reforested with the trees with the same DNA as these Giant trees that have survived for millennia.
