This is great. We need to be sure that these old trees are protected. In Latvia and everywhere else.
The thing I find a bit strange about this story is that in 50 years they have only 'found' around a third of these trees.
Latvia isn't that massive and it isn't exactly filled with impassable jungles where people never go. So, where are these huge trees hiding?
John 'tree hunting' day in Latvia! After all Latvia will get vaccination the all population at the same time in different areas will meet and will go to the major tree hunting action! It will be simple as the internet is everywhere! People will need to mark the right tree on the mobile app so won't be any problem later to find!
Piri Just make the vaccination stations in the middle of the forests and people can find the trees on their way.
Piri 'tree hunting' day in Latvia!
Maybe it could really be something like this. If all of the people went out and covered every area of forests during one weekend with some kind of app that tracks the area they cover and they can mark the big trees, then it could find them almost all
and this is why we need a 'laughing' reaction emoji - @admins, just saying!

John Very nice
Arvīds That would be amazing, do it! Can you make apps?
So Veli That would be amazing, do it! Can you make apps?
No, I can't do anything like that. But @Treebeard can.
@Treebeard isn't so certain about that.
@Arvīds is certain that @Treebeard can
Arvids clearly has no idea what Treebeard does. It would be a nice idea and does not sound difficult.
