Cloning Champion Trees

Nearly 5000 years old, the world's oldest tree has produced offspring. A project aims to clone the nation's biggest trees for cities.

Nicknamed Methuselah, it [is] the oldest known living tree on the planet...envisions Washington's streets eventually lined with clones of many of the nation's most extraordinary trees -- even dead ones, like Maryland's famous Wye Oak, which scientists managed to clone shortly before it blew down last year. The District would become a living museum of some of the biggest and oldest trees in the land...Washington was known as the City of Trees, but no longer. Urban development and pollution have taken a heavy toll
