In January of 2010 Archangel Ancient Tree Archive made our first international collection trip. From two of the oldest remaining oak stands in Ireland we collected around 20 different Common Oak trees, all estimated to be 500-1000 years in age. The propagules from trees have been growing in the Netherlands and are scheduled to come to Michigan for further research this winter. Transporting this living material involves all sorts of agricultural regulations. Part of our work is in sorting out these regulations and working with various governmental agencies to ensure the safe transport of our clones. We are also in the midst of raising funds to establish the first international archive in Ireland with the trees from this collection.
