Avatar Grove, a stand of centuries-old Douglas firs and red cedars, will be included in an expanded 59-hectare old-growth management area, Forests Minister Steve Thomson announced in February 2012. The grove is protected from logging and mining, but it is one step short of the legislated protection of park designation.Locations:British Columbia-Canada-North America-Vancouver IslandDate:3 May, 2011Credit:© Jennifer Hladkowicz / GreenpeaceMaximum size:3000px X 4000pxKeywords:Clearcutting-Day-Deforestation-Destruction-Forests (campaign title)-Forests (topography)-KWCI (GPI)-Logging practices-Mountains-Outdoors-Streams-Temperate rainforests-Timber industry-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.
