    These areas of primary forest are just northwest of the gravel pit on Granite Bay Road.



    The areas of primary forest are visible in the image above in the centre foreground and the left of centre middle ground. Mount Seymour is in the background, the gravel pit on the left.



    Logging has recently occurred in the north end of the more northern area.



    The old forest is likely greater than 250 years of age.



    A surviving Douglas fir vet is very tall.



    The views from the east end of Raven Ridge, above the northern area of old forest, have spectacular views, including of Main Lake to the east.

  • 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).
