A non-profit has just planted 75 saplings that are cloned from the stumps of ancient giant redwoods, which might just hold the answer to climate change…or at least a part of it. The non-profit is called Archangel Ancient Tree Archive, or AATA, whose mission is to propagate the world’s most important old-growth trees, to reforest the Earth with them, and to archive their genetics in what they call living libraries, to preserve the trees and the ability to grow them in the future. When AATA’s founder David Milarch discovered that the stumps of some of those ancient giants were still alive, he and his team decided to clone them. The Resident discusses.
