The magical Fairholm Maple - possibly the biggest maple tree in the world!

We just got back from a trip to the astoundingly majestic and mossy temperate rainforests of the Olympic National Park in Washington state, where the Ancient Forest Alliance's photographer, TJ Watt, has taken hundreds of phenomenal photos! Here are some of the highlights. Three million tourists come to see the giant trees in this park every year. Here at home the BC government has done virtually nothing to protect and promote our ancient forest heritage where some of the biggest trees on Earth grow on Vancouver Island and in the Lower Mainland. We need to push the BC government to ensure green businesses and jobs based on sensitive old-growth eco-tourism, value-added ,sustainable second-growth forestry, non-timber forest products, and a diversified low carbon economy.
