Starting in 2009 Archangel Ancient Tree Archive began our Giant Sequoia project. Old growth sequoias had never been successfully cloned beyond a relatively young age of about 80 years old. We wanted to root trees that are 2-3,000 years old – and we did! Over the past couple of years we have established a growing collection of Giant Sequoias from the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Giant Sequoia are among the best carbon stackers on the planet, growing faster than most species and in a range of zones with a resilience against forest fires and disease. You will find Giant Sequoia growing in California and you might see them in places like Ireland, Germany and even Michigan.
