"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

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.

Scott Simon talks with David Milarch of the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive about their project to plant clones of ancients tree on the Oregon coast, here.
