Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) giant in a clear-cut area of Vancouver Island. This nearly 1000-year-old escaped the chainsaw has become a symbol of the protection of the rainforest, which is 90% devastated. This "Big Lonely Doug" is 70 m tall, some rare specimens reach 80 m tall, near Avatar Grove, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
