Our living archives of the world's greatest trees will preserve their genetics for all time

Video Issues?

An archive is a living library of our champion trees, where they can safely grow into the future and be available for further study and preservation. It is a protected environment, where the trees can grow undisturbed, indefinitely. Our largest archive is currently located in Michigan and we are actively raising funds to establish our first international archive in Ireland, and our first west coast archive in southern Oregon. If you are interested in helping to sponsor an archive, please contact us.
