Archive

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

Success to Date

AATA has established living archives containing hundreds of vital trees in Michigan and by recently planting the first “super grove” in southern Oregon – an archive of clones of the largest and oldest coast redwoods.

Next Steps

To carry on the success of AATA, your gift will help us achieve these Reforestation goals over the next three years:

  • Additional cloning of champion and rare trees to expand the living archive from the current 70 cloned champions to more than 140. These are trees that we feel are most important to archive in living libraries and for reforestation to help restore planetary health through carbon sequestration and oxygenation.
  • Development of an infrastructure in the Copemish office to support scientific, technical, outreach, and fundraising activities.

To accomplish these goals, this will require additional private funding building towards the establishment of an endowment fund.
