Saving ancient redwoods – this “impossible” idea is now a worldwide success

Drought has become a serious threat for many countries across the globe. With it, one of the serious repercussions can be seen in Nature and the death of many of our forests through extreme heat and insects that bore into the heart of the trees. Centuries-old forests are dying across the U.S.

I’ve written several articles about the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive project in Michigan and its quest to clone ancient “champion” trees to help reverse deforestation and rebuild old growth forests around the world. Its founder, David Milarch, continues to achieve what “experts” told him was impossible – breaking the genetic code of dead and dying old growth trees and cloning them – giving them life again in all their magnificence.

These old growth "champion" trees will help rebuild our disappearing  forests

You’ll want to check out this latest video and see how large a scope this project has become. How exciting to see how one man’s vision is making such a large difference.

  1. I have to respond to this since the word drought is used. Add up the amount of tons/da of AC generated and multiply that times 5lbs/ton/da and that will give you an idea of how much AC condensate of pure water we are wasting every air conditioned day. So “ Drought” is solvable, if we again apply our practical, off the self technology, called “ Water Capture”. Drought is a term used by those who would rather talk about the problem instead of solving it.

    This is very fixable.

    • Terry:

      I totally agree with your premise. The technology does exist to handle this. The problem is getting it accepted as the norm in our society. I’m glad that you brought this up. The more we can educate people as to new ideas and possibilities, the more we can help change habits to more earth-friendly ones.

      Thanks for your comments. I hope that you’ll keep coming back and speak up on other topics I write about.
