There is very little old growth forest that can be easily reached from the Vancouver area. There is a good amount of second growth forest that is impressively tall. The stumps from the old growth forests are begininng to disappear since its been a century or more since they were cut.
I'm disappointed that the people back then just took all the trees they did without a thought to the legacy they left us. Something we ought to think of now when the legacy we will leave behind appears to be a much less habitable world depleted of resources.
