    There are a number of large Douglas firs along the banks of Luoma Creek south of where it flows under a steel and concrete bridge on the logging road. The largest tree has a circumference at breast height of 21.1 feet. TimberWest has logged around several other vets in this area. A count of growth rings of nearby logs show these trees are approximately 350 years in age.

    Below: A log near the grove, left by TimberWest, showed that this tree, with a diameter of about 4.2 feet, was at least 350 years old.

  • 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).
