Dead Trees Live Again
What might have been the largest tree on earth might live again, in a way. A giant redwood tree cut down in Fieldbrook (Humboldt county) in the 19th century has been successfully cloned, and seedlings made from its genetic material will be planted in Oregon this week. It's part of a larger project of the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive. You'll hear what the archive is all about.
