    There are at least four areas of old forest (or concentrations of old trees) at Abandoned Bay, as shown in the images below. These are on the east side of Quadra Island north of Yeatman Bay. They have not yet been explored on foot. Okisollo Resources and Cape Mudge Forestry are actively logging in the area. Three additional clearcuts have been made since the satellite image below was taken. Cape Mudge Forestry also built a logging road in 2022 that runs south toward Yeatman Bay.

  • 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).
