The largest Douglas fir on Earth is the Red Creek Fir on Vancouver Island. The tree and a small surrounding stand of trees currently receive “soft” protection through an Old-Growth Management Area, but legislated “hard” protection is needed in the form of a conservancy, park, or ecological reserve that also encompasses a much larger buffer area.
More importantly, BC needs to implement a provincial old-growth strategy to end logging of our endangered old-growth forests and to ensure value-added, second-growth forestry instead.
