a big tree!

meares island, tofino.

home to the most spectacular ancient forest giants i’ve ever seen. look at this thing! gawsh darn, if trees could talk.

the wcwc is in the midst of one of the most important environmental campaigns in this region. their pitch is to “save old growth forests and ban raw log exports” in an attempt to get the BC Liberal government to stop logging beautiful old growth forests like this one, and make the switch sooner, rather than later, to sustainably logging second growth forests instead. because once you get rid of these puppies, its all going to be second growth anyway. this action wouldn’t be putting an end to logging and forestry jobs on the island, it would just work to preserve our productive old growth forests (73% of which have already been chopped down!) for wildlife habitats and future generations alike to enjoy… just as much as i enjoyed our hike through the torrential downpours this weekend.
