“Champion” Old Growth Clones
Archangel Ancient Tree Archive

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 including releasing oxygen, sequestering carbon dioxide, providing beneficial aerosols and medicines: essentially a global warming solution

The Problem
The University of Michigan will likely not reach their 2025 goal with the current trends
Our Initial Goals for this Project
1. Research how many old growth champion sequoia trees would be required to offset the University of Michigan’s carbon footprint

2. Create strong data on tree quantities and carbon sequestration timelines

3. Scout and design/model permaculture based old growth forest ecosystems for several potential site locations in Ann Arbor
Our Initial Goals for this Project

Grab a shovel, plant a tree, save the world
especially on sequestration

U-M needs a
200,080 mtCO2
reduction per year to achieve the 2025 goal


124,530 sequoias

to reach the
2025 goal...

Add Carbon Sequestration as a criteria under U-M goals
Create a Forest Initiative On Campus and in the Ann Arbor Community
Follow steps necessary to actually implement a forest
Potential Site for Our Forest Prototype
An opportunity to jump start this initiative by planting pilot Sequoia Trees on Campus
