Canada's largest tree, the Cheewhat Giant, grows protected in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on southern Vancouver Island. This western redcedar behemoth is 182 ft (55 m) tall and 20 ft (6 m) in diametre.
The trail leading to the Cheewhat passes by some other redcedar trees of epic proportions as well.
The surrounding old-growth forest is also amongst the richest and most vibrant I have ever visited. A must-see place for any big tree hunter.
