If you were down to the last of your life savings, wouldn’t it be time to do something?
The mission of Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is to:
Propagate the world’s most important old growth trees before they are gone.
Archive the genetics of ancient trees in living libraries around the world for the future.
Reforest the Earth with the offspring of these trees to provide the myriad of beneficial ecosystem services essential for all life forms to thrive. Trees are excellent at sequestering carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen, and providing beneficial aerosols and medicines. They are essentially a global warming solution.
We are creating living libraries of old-growth tree genetics.
Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that locates and propagates the world’s largest and most iconic trees.
We promote the use of the right trees for the right application for a balanced, sustainable environment. We are creating living libraries of old-growth tree genetics by cloning these old growth trees through traditional and advanced horticultural propagation for the purpose of future research and functional reforestation.
We want, and need to replace the natural filter systems of our water and air to fight global warming caused climate change, and protect our freshwater ecosystem to restore the health of our planet.
About 98 percent of old growth forests in the United States are gone.
We are essentially down to 2 percent of our “life savings”.

Our dear friend Terry Mock was a driving force behind Archangel’s work. For decades, Archangel’s David Milarch and Terry collaborated to turn an idea into a thriving mission to collect, propagate, and replant old-growth tree genetics to assist the trees’ migration in the face of a warming planet.
A newly published scientific study validates Archangel’s decades-long work to protect and preserve ancient trees. The paper details the critical ecosystem role that ancient trees play in protecting our ecosystem.
We’re always on the hunt for new Champions to add to our archive, so when we hear that there is an ancient Coastal Redwood stump that is still alive, we undoubtedly find time in our expedition schedule for a visit.
