Towering near-record Sitka spruce located near Port Renfrew
CHEK News, December 17, 2017
Port Renfrew is billed as Canada’s Tall Tree Capital, and the latest find is helping to enforce the nickname.
The Ancient Forest Alliance (AFA) says they located an 11-foot diameter Sitka spruce tree that is the tenth widest Sitka spruce in Canada, according to the BC Big Tree Registry.
AFA says they found the massive tree in one of the last unprotected stands of old-growth Sitka spruce groves on Vancouver Island, nicknamed FernGully Grove, near Port Renfrew.
