In January 2017, Archangel Ancient Tree Archive, a non-profit organization that locates and propagates the world’s largest and most iconic trees, contacted the City of Kenmore to donate clones and offspring of Coast Redwood trees taken from multi-thousand-year-old trees.

The Archangel Ancient Tree Archive has produced and planted over 300,000 individual trees with a wide reach across seven countries. Increasing global climate awareness, the non-profit group has begun to garner attention, having several articles were written about their work as well as the production of an award-winning short film “Moving the Giants – An Urgent Plan to Save the Planet.”

Kenmore received 10 of these individual young trees from Michigan. Currently standing approximately 15-20 inches tall, these lovely specimens will be about 100 - 150 feet in height and up to four feet in diameter in 50 years!

You can find Kenmore’s newest trees in four different City parks: Rhododendron, Wallace Swamp Creek, Northshore Summit, and Linwood Park.
