  • Raven Lake Grove

    This grove, west of Raven Lake, is mapped in the Old Growth Strategic Review Technical Advisory Panel’s mapping of Remnant Old Ecosystems. Its existence appears to be supported by satellite imagery and a drone flight (see images below), but has not, to date, been ground-truthed. It is in TFL 47.

    The ministry’s Vegetative Resource Inventory identifies this as about 4 hectares of 263-year-old forest (2021). The area’s elevation precludes large-diameter trees and it was likely left because it is on steep slopes.

  • 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).
