Our Urgent Mission
The mission of Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is to:
Propagate the world’s most important old growth trees before they are gone.
Reforest the Earth with the offspring of these trees to provide the myriad of beneficial ecosystem services essential for all life forms to thrive including releasing oxygen, sequestering carbon dioxide, providing beneficial aerosols and medicines: essentially a global warming solution.
Archive the genetics of ancient trees in living libraries around the world for the future.
The planet is large and its needs are great.
The team at Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is small and we are not fully funded.
We urgently need your help now to allow us to carry out our mission.
Only together can we mount an effort to preserve a livable future for our children and our grandchildren.
Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is an IRS verified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
