In this scene from the Ancient Forest Alliance, a tree- climber scales and measures ‘Big Lonely Doug’ (photo reference courtesy T.J. Watt).

Surrounded by clearcut and endangered Old-Growth Forests, this specimen is the second-largest Douglas fir in Canada measuring 66 metres high and 12 metres wide.

Big Lonely Doug can be found near Carmanah, Clayoquot and Avatar Grove, in Canada’s “Tall Tree Capital” on Vancouver Island.
