A Channel News - Giant Fir Threatened

The Red Creek Fir towers above a stand of old growth forest about a half hour from Port Renfrew.

A News Vancouver Island, February 24, 2010

PORT RENFREW - Conservationists say the BC government is putting the future of the World's tallest Douglas fir tree in jeopardy.

The Red Creek Fir Tree towers above a stand of old growth forest about a half hour from Port Renfrew. But the Ancient Forest Alliance says nearby logging could threaten the mighty fir. If the forest around the tree was cut down, the group says the mighty fir tree would be exposed to fierce winds roaring up the valley.

They want the province to consider protecting the red creek fir tree and the surrounding forest by creating an ancient forest reserve.
