Stiles Machinery said during its IWF 2016 press conference that it will provide support to the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive. Based in Copemish, Michigan, the organization propagates some of Earth's oldest trees, including California's giant redwoods, by cloning cuttings of the centuries-old specimens.

The video "Moving the Giants: An Urgent Plan to Save the Planet," shown during Stiles' press conference, tells the story of arborist David Milarch (above), as he helps California coast redwoods migrate northward to survive climate changes that threaten their current habitat. His is one path to promote “treequestration,” a mass movement to use one of nature’s most prolific methods to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the amount of future climate change.
