Discovery/Science Channel

We watch these channels more than anything and I wonder if y'all have them? We saw this awesome story about the Wollemi Pine in Austrailia that was nearly extinct and millions of years old. They went about gathering clippings and seeds to clone and start to re-establish this pine. Mind you this involves swinging from a line off a helicopter or descending from the top of some high a$$ place but it is awsome all the info they gave and the documentation of how they have taken to gathering the seeds and clippings and even to giving the people of Austrailia a chance to purchase and re-plant the trees. The link is below for anyone interested in the Wollemi Pine and it's story.:nerd:

I've never read anything about trees before but this one seems quite cool (never thought I'd say that about a tree!) coz there is like 100 left in the world!
