Despite the deniers and deleters, like Trump, and Walker, brilliance

Walker and Trump have their Stepp, Pruitt and Zinke, et al, but science has its heroes and their work has got to be publicized, so here you go:
Arborists Have Cloned Ancient Redwoods From Their Massive Stumps
A team of arborists has successfully cloned and grown saplings from the stumps of some of the world’s oldest and largest coast redwoods, some of which were 3,000 years old and measured 35 feet in diameter when they were cut down in the 19th and 20th centuries. Earlier this month, 75 of the cloned saplings were planted at the Presidio national park in San Francisco.
