The Nugedzi Lake old-growth forest is Quadra Island's largest area of intact primary forest. It lies entirely within TimberWest's TFL 47. The map above shows TimberWest's own mapping of 250+ years-old forest in the area. In the photo below, the northern edge of the forest to the right of Nugedzi Lake is clearly demarcated by shadow. Most of the forest south of that line is old sub-alpine Douglas fir, Mountain Hemlock and Western Red Cedar.
