hi all,

i was wondering if it was yet possible to clone trees? in particular an
oak tree. we have a particular oak which is of symbolic nature which
we'd like to somehow capture, as it it being destroyed by a housing
developer. i think it might be possible to create a cutting, but the
issue is that i am now in another country, and bringing a cutting
through customs may pose to be a minor issue... does any technology
exist whereby maybe i could get a leaf or a small part of the tree to
someone for cloning? i know this may sound rediculous, but it is a
genuine enquiry.

regards,

nick.
