Archangel Co-Founder David Milarch was interviewed on this week’s episode of the Living On Earth radio program. Living On Earth is independently produced but airs on several NPR stations.
The 3000-year-old Giant Sequoia and Coast Redwood trees of the Pacific Northwest are among the biggest and oldest individual living things on our planet. Sadly, all but a few were cut down for logs decades ago. To help restore these majestic trees which sequester large amounts of carbon, the non-profit organization Archangel Ancient Tree Archive has dedicated its efforts to cloning their DNA. David Milarch tells host Bobby Bascomb why cloning specific trees can help restore a resilient population. (09:56)
