Check out Canada's second largest Douglas-fir tree (photos)
Georgia Straight, April 24, 2014
That's one big tree.
Dubbed "Big Lonely Doug", this Douglas-fir is the second largest tree of its species (Pseudotsuga menziesii) in Canada.
Forest ecologist Andy MacKinnon, who runs the B.C. Big Tree Registry, made it official last week, when he measured the thing.
Here's the stats:
Height: 70.2 metres or 230 feet
The Ancient Forest Alliance, which sent out the photos, is calling for provincial legislation to protect big trees like this.
