A non profit group called Archangel Ancient Tree Archive is collecting genetic material from the world's most ancient trees in an effort to replant clones and restore our ancient forests while also cleansing our environment by absorbing carbon dioxide.

I just read about this in yesterday's paper. It showed a man climbing the 'WaterFall' Tree. What an awesome group to clone and re-transplant these young buds. I wish them well in their endeavors for this.

Interesting. Now if we can figure out a way to mix this genetic material so we can get some genetic variation--

Great idea just hope it works. To bad we can't trans plant the dummies that are clear cutting the rainforest to the artic circle.

In the Forest at the rising dawn

I am moving among the branches of
colorful foliage, from a glade emerald green, through the white
path that whirls and loses in the thick wood at dawn.

In the shady enchanted forest, I hear an echo of love,
that vibrates and slides silently around, giving
colour at the woodland Universe

Hundreds of mighty trees and joyful animals sing
a song at dawn, accompanied by the sound of the
wind, through leaves, branches and sweet twitterings that
spread in the heart of the forest, that smiles
to the noises of the day that comes back.

Harmonies and relaxing colors of various shades of green,
appear in the suggestive brushwood, with bushes glowing with
multicolor leaves, illuminated with warm colors from the rising dawn.
A squirrel stares at me and runs away to hide,
among the rosy branches, tainted by the rising sun through the trees.

A line of working ants run to their den
through the path that whirls among the
plants of the brushwood, radiated by long trails
of silver light that get from the sun quick down
to the ground as sparkling swords.

The noises are alternated by mysterious sounds,
chants and percussions directed from the orchestra formed
by thousand of instruments of the Forestís nature

I hear again the echoes of love vibrating harmoniously
and sliding lightly in the magic forest.

The smile blossoms in the face of the wood that is revealing and
shows itself through the eyes of the invisible spirits of nature,
whispering loving words and sending joy to the heart of
man, thanks to life, chants and songs of the Forest.

Cloning of anything is unnatural. Is this any different from GM really? We wonder

Noted. I love trees, and all that is to protect, restore forests and clean up the environment ambienrte, I think it's a great idea. Thank you Clean

I'd clone anything but humans.
The earth needs to get its' population down to a million or less
instead of having seven billion & counting.
More power to these tree cloners.......The more the merrier.

Plant & protect Danny's trees for life in 2011.........
Trees are the lungs of the earth...........

Cloning ancient trees seems a good use of the process.

Love trees what a beauitiful thing to clone

How does that guarantee success? Ancient, as in millennia or centuries, tree-clones will see their environment changed in comparison to their original gestation, what once were favourable elements, might not be so in this day and age!

That is one good looking tree.. we have to save as many as we can...

The idea is good, but I will save any comments until there are results, if I live that long.

This is a very good idea, agree with william, I wish i could live long enough to see them

Just for the record, tree cloning has been going on for centuries, a process called vegetative propagation. In plain English, taking a cutting to produce a new plant with no genetic variation, a clone. Many plants do this quite naturally, all the time.

Awesome. Let's put science working with nature

Great just so long as there is no genetic modification involved. Even if the clones are not able to breed at least it will give us a breathing space to sort out our mess.
