Copemish Plant Nursery Clones Ancient Tree

A Manistee county nursery says they have successfully cloned an ancient tree given to the U.S. from Greece.

Arch-Angel Ancient Tree Archive in Copemish says they have a healthy six-foot tall Hippocrates Sycamore Tree.

A piece of the original tree came to the U.S. in 1961 as a gift from Greece, but later died.

The tree will be transplanted at the medical library of the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, in October.
