What an exciting time! I'm thrilled and relieved to be able to celebrate that just last week the Avatar Grove was officially protected from logging! Above is the iconic photo of "Canada's Gnarliest Tree" on the cover of last Friday's Times Colonist. It's been incredible seeing how things evolved so quickly from when myself and a friend first stumbled upon the grove for the first time just over 2 years ago as an unknown place to it becoming the hottest old-growth campaign of the decade! Great to be able to walk through the giant redcedars and Douglas-firs now knowing that they will most likely be there when we return. Victory!
