Ancient Trees hold a key to unlock nature's greatest potential. Why Ancient Trees?

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.

    Do you have the Giant Sequoia for sale. And also would they make it in Minnesota?

      Hi Troy. We don’t currently have any Giant sequoia available. That tree would most likely survive in your climate given the proper care until it is established.

    Have you considered tissue culturing the John Muir Redwood in Martinez and grafting it onto a seedling rootstock?

    Giant Sequoia
    I would love to buy several young Sequoias.
    When will you sell this tree?

    I’ve never heard of or seen a Giant Sequoia in Michigan and I have lived here 66 years. Perhaps in a green house when young but certainly not outdoors of any appreciable size!
