We are a Michigan-based non-profit organization working on a global mission. We collect, propagate and archive the genetics of ancient champion trees from around the globe. We are planting trees to reforest the Earth. We invite you to discover our activities, see us in action in our videos, support us by shopping for Archangel logo wear and more in our store, participate in our blog, and let us know what you think by sharing your feedback.
We have just launched our Greenhouse Fundraiser Project! We’re in need of a new growing facility that saves energy and does a better job of growing our ancient tree clones. We need your help to raise the funds to build a greenhouse for the trees.
The fundraiser has just launched on Monday June 3rd.
We have many great perks to thank you for your support, and for the first time ever, we have a few opportunities to receive one our very limited supply of ancient redwoods.

The book by award-winning journalist and science writer Jim Robbins entitled, The Man Who Planted Trees: Lost Groves, Champion Trees, and an Urgent Plant to Save the Planet, argues that “trees and forests are the highest functioning members of ecological society,” and chronicles the adventures of David Milarch, co-founder of Archangel Ancient Tree Archive, who has dedicated his life to cloning and replanting the oldest, and most important trees on Earth. Robbins’ crystal clear science behind this noble effort reveals numerous fascinating facts about the importance of trees, such as how they perform vital services to our environment in absorbing carbon dioxide – a greenhouse gas, clean pollutants from the air, and protect our freshwater ecosystems.
The book was featured in the New York Times 100 Notable Books Issue this past December, and has also been featured in stories on NPR Weekend, CBC Radio, in The Times (London), and numerous blogs and internet sites. Your purchase of the book in our store helps to support our mission to locate, collect, propagate, and archive the genetics of these important trees. The book makes a unique and inspiring gift, and our store is the only place where it can be autographed and dedicated by David Milarch.
