AATA Living Archives Save Genetics for Future Generations

After trees propagated by ATAA and grown to a hearty height, they are replanted to form a living library of 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, the first “super grove” in southern Oregon – forming an archive of clones of the largest and oldest coast redwoods. In association with our partners at The Eden Project in Cornwall, England, a grove of Archangel Champion Coast redwood trees were planted to create Europe’s first redwood forest.
