#1)  Hi, from the tall trees of coastal BC!

Postby VancouverBigTrees » Thu Jun 02, 2016 1:20 am

Greetings fellow tree enthusiasts!

I'm interested in very large trees across the world. A pertinent interest of mine right now is to discuss and learn from others on the subject of how tall did the Douglas-fir often grow historically? I'm particularly interested in identifying research methods to predict historical tree heights.

I have a range of experience in old-growth, including my recent MSc studying old-growth forest recovery.

I have an online hiking guide to the incredible trees around Vancouver, BC. We have trees > 90m tall!

I did a 10 month cycling trip to see big trees across North America (Vancouver-Panama)

I've learned a lot from the NTS webpage over the years. Decided it was finally time to join. Looking forward to connecting with like minded tree folks.
Cheers,
Ira

Welcome to the BBS, I've seen your blog previously and enjoyed it. I used to do short bicycle tours fairly often and it still comes up as a daydream, to take a meandering bicycle tour in the eastern US at a pace that would really let me poke around unexamined spots where minor patches of old growth or unexpectedly-tall regrowth might be hiding. Belated congrats on completing your long journey and please do share some of your tree encounters here on the boards!
