    Approximate extent of the Clear Lake Grove

     

    THIS GROVE of about 100 old-growth Douglas-firs is in Main Lake Provincial Park. The tree  below is the second largest in circumference, 25.2 feet at breast height. A drone established its height at approximately 270 feet (90 metres).

    A nearby neighbour (Douglas fir) has a circumference of 26.4 feet at breast height (photo below). We are uncertain about the age of these trees, but they are almost certainly older than 500 years.

  • 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).
