    These scattered areas of primary forest sit atop a hill in the midst of a logged area. They were observed during drone flights in 2020, but have not been visited on the ground. The BC Conservation Data Centre has mapped a nest of a red-listed Northern Goshawk in this general area.

    In the photo above, the foreground is old logging by TimberWest in what is now Woodlot 1969. The Goshawk Groves are approximately indicated by the green dots.

  • The map below is TimberWests account of forest by age class on Quadra Island. It doesnt indicate all of the old forest that has been confirmed by the Discovery Islands Forest Conservation Project, but most of the areas shown in brown are areas of old forest (>250 years).
