Artist's Description

Massive western redcedar ( Thuja plicata ) trunks, standing amid other trees such as bigleaf maple ( Acer macrophyllum ) and Douglas-fir ( Pseudotsuga menziesii ), conribute to a vast canopy of green. The structure of old-growth forests is often considered in the vertical direction. The term continuous canopy refers to tree-crowns being present in all levels of the forest from near-surface to the tops of the highest trees. Gaps in the canopy, crated when one or more of the forest giants topple, provide light wells for different species to grow and develop the complex vertical structure that is a hallmark of old-growth forests.
