Cathedral Grove is a protected area of west coast rain forest, a short distance from Port Alberni on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The grove is part of McMillan Park, and contains numerous giant Douglas firs, western Red Cedar and other trees indigenous to the coastal areas of B.C. It’s difficult to really appreciate the size and height of these giants unless you can stand there and crane your neck upward to try to see the tops. Even then, about all you can do is try to guess.

    Your description is so perfect George. Here on Mayne Island our home has huge fir trees and the a few cedar. I don’t know how tall they are but many stories for sure. Nice capture… haven’t been to Cathedral Grove for a number of years.

  • Hi Terrill,many thanks. We have a number of Douglas firs around our house also, but only about 60 or 70 feet..still pretty high..but nothing compared to those in the Grove.
