  • Deepwater Valley Groves (northwestern end)

    At the northwestern end of Deepwater Valley, there are several areas of old forest that escaped initial logging in the area, likely as a result of being at the top of steep-sided rocky outcrops. These areas were economically or physically inoperable for logging equipment.

    These areas are all in TimberWest’s TFL 47 and the company is actively logging in the valley below them. They were mapped in 2021 as “priority deferral areas” by the provincial Old Growth Strategic Review’s Technical Advisory Panel even though the likelihood of them being logged soon is low due to physical constraints.

  • 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).
