VIDEO: World's Largest Douglas-fir Tree - The Red Creek Fir!

The largest Douglas fir on Earth is the Red Creek Fir on Vancouver Island.

Ancient Forest Alliance, June 8, 2011

Please sign our petition at http://www.ancientforestpetition.com

The largest Douglas fir on Earth is the Red Creek Fir on Vancouver Island. The tree and a small surrounding stand of trees currently receive "soft" protection through an Old-Growth Management Area, but legislated "hard" protection is needed in the form of a conservancy, park, or ecological reserve that also encompasses a much larger buffer area.

More importantly, BC needs to implement a provincial old-growth strategy to end logging of our endangered old-growth forests and to ensure value-added, second-growth forestry instead.

Height: 73.8m (242'), Circumference: 13.3m (43.7'), Diameter: 4.2m (14')
