    This grove of cedars is in We Wai Kai Nation’s Woodlot 1970, on the east side of Quadra Island at Ralph Point north of Yeatman Bay. One of the cedars in the grove measures 31.6 feet in circumference at breast height in September 2021. There are roughly 30 cedars of significant size and a few large Douglas firs in the grove area.

    The Nation’s Woodlot Plan map does not show this as an area where harvesting will be avoided, but rather it is mapped as a “Visual/Recreational Management Area.” A visit to the grove in September 2022 showed a logging road has been built just to the southwest of the grove. A “Cutting Boundary” had been flagged through the grove.

  • 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).
