Trees cloned from ancient redwood DNA could help combat climate change, according to arborists from a nonprofit group.
An environmental organization called Archangel Ancient Tree Archive planted a “super grove” of 75 redwood saplings in San Francisco’s Presidio park on Dec. 14. Saplings from the project are also developing in groves in Canada, England, France, New Zealand and Australia, Quartz reported.
If the trees grow as planned, each mature redwood could pull as much as 250 tons of carbon dioxide from the air, according to the group.
