Group gathering Joshua Tree seeds in case replanting needed due to fire, climate change displacement

With a couple of taps from a pole, Joshua tree seed pods fell from the end of a branch onto the dry desert ground below.


Inside the pods were neat rows of about 250 round black seeds, each with the promise of growing into a new Joshua tree.


“When they first come up, they almost look like a grass and then they very slowly get bigger,” said Madena Asbell, the Mojave Desert Land Trust’s director of plant conservation programs.
