  • Q83 Stand of old hemlock in which older Douglas fir had previously been logged

    Project Staff

    This small 1.5-hectare stand in Woodlot 1969 contains relatively rare (on Quadra Island) older Western hemlock. Most Douglas fir in the stand had previously been selectively logged (circa early 20the century). The larger hemlock in the stand ranged up to 10.3-feet in circumference at breast height in August 2023.

  • 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).
