    Simple answer: The Wollemi Pine. Only 39 specimens in the wild. Seedlings are now available for sale.

    Better answer: Because we don’t know all the trees in the world, the rarest could very well be undiscovered. There might be only one left, dying right as of this minute.

    Some interesting points to consider: Why is being “rare” important? In an evolutionary sense, doesn’t that mean a tree has reached the end of its natural cycle? But what if human-made changes caused the tree species’ decline? Should we bring it back, just to undo the damage we did?
