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.
