I painted part of this painting onsite at the Ancient Cedars trail located near Whistler and finished this in my studio. Yes, I am a tree hugger and I am proud of it! This grove of massive old growth cedars are over 900 years old. Many of BC's last old-growth forests are among the most resilient forests and will better cope with worsening climate change impacts than young forests. Old-growth is critical to protect communities from droughts, floods and wildfires.
Old-growth forests are structurally and ecologically diverse and often remain very stable for centuries. Old-growth forests feature multi-layered canopies with various tree species at different stages of their life cycle. In turn, old trees support species that don’t occur in younger forests. They play an important role in sequestering carbon above and below ground.
Protecting the last ancient rainforest and centuries-old trees is a moral responsibility. We must stand up for these ecologically and culturally vital forests.
Old-growth forests offer precious habitats for animals and plants. Many wildlife species use cavities to nest and live in, such as wood duck, screech owl and flying squirrel, which require large, partially decayed trees for nesting. Some of Canada’s species at risk, such as northern spotted owl and old-growth specklebelly lichen, may also be found in old-growth forests.
Old-growth forests have accumulated huge amounts of carbon per hectares and clearcutting them releases massive amounts of carbon back into the atmosphere. Protecting old-growth means reducing emissions quickly and keeping the carbon where it belongs.
