Giant Trees to Fight Climate Change

Most Americans are aware that some of our biggest trees reside in California. They are the Giant Sequoia and Coastal Redwood. Giant Sequoias grow to an average height of 170 feet to 280 feet and are among some of the oldest living things on the earth.

One family in Michigan believes that these trees hold the key to help stem the tide of climate change currently affecting our habitats. David Milarch and his family started the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive to preserve the genetics that have made these 3,000 year-old trees so resilient.  Their mission is to propagate, reforest, and archive these trees. They do this because 98% of our old growth forests in the U.S. are gone and they believe that these large trees will help in the battle against climate change.
