Twelve-year-old Snow Gum growing on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada

Twelve-year-old Snow Gum growing on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada

Among the world’s tallest trees, these stately conifers once blanketed all of Vancouver Island. Often called the skyscrapers of the forest, Douglas-firs are a straight-trunked tree with a spire-like crown, and can grow up to 30 stories high. Their upper branches point up while the lower branches droop down, and it’s dark brown, greyish bark is considered the most gnarly of all the conifers—deeply ridged and grooved.
