Avatar Grove is home to some of the largest and strangest shaped ancient redcedars on the Island. There are also rare large Douglas-firs found here as well. It has the potential to be the "Cathedral Grove of Port Renfrew" due to its ease of accessibility and giant trees.Locations:British Columbia-Canada-North AmericaDate:3 May, 2011Credit:© Jennifer Hladkowicz / GreenpeaceMaximum size:2248px X 4000pxKeywords:Close ups-Day-Forests (campaign title)-Forests (topography)-KWCI (GPI)-Nature-Outdoors-Spring-Temperate rainforests-TreesShoot:Avatar Grove in British ColumbiaAvatar Grove is a phenomenal stand of giant old-growth red cedar and Douglas fir alongside the Gordon River, approximately 15 minutes away from Port Renfrew, BC. Massive redcedars with huge twisted and contorted burls are found in large numbers throughout the stand including one that's been dubbed “Canada’s Gnarliest Tree” - a giant shaped red cedar with a massive burl nearly 12ft in diameter. Rare giant old-growth Douglas fir, of which 99% have been logged from Vancouver Island, are also found scattered throughout the forest. The forest provides habitat for Roosevelt elk, Pilliated woodpeckers, cougar, bears, wolves, and more. The grove is now protected in an expanded old-growth management area, totaling 59.4 hectares. However, the Ancient Forest Alliance (who discovered the area in 2009) would like to see a new provincial plan to protect all of B.C.’s endangered old-growth forests and to ensure a sustainable second-growth forest industry instead.
