World’s Oldest Trees
 
Increasing global awareness of the necessity to maintain the world’s old forests, as an insight into the world’s history and as a means to continue supporting life on Earth, is crucial. Through environmental research and monitoring, particularly of plants, we can help raise awareness of these issues and engage the global community in projects that will help to secure our future. With worldwide collaboration between researchers, governments, and the general community, it is possible to make a global commitment to change and set about fulfilling this dedication to improving the health of our planet.
