Inland Rainforest in British Columbia

in photofeed •  11 days ago 

One immediately gets a sense of peace when walking among the giant Western Red Cedars (Thuja plicata) of the inland temperate rainforest in the central interior of British Columbia. The remnant old growth Cedar stands of the Interior Cedar Hemlock Ecozone can frequently be between 400-800 years old with trees in remote pockets found up to four metres in diameter with ages estimated well over 1000 years old. As the only inland rainforest ecosystem found more than 500 km from an ocean, it is unique in its heavy reliance on snowpack melt to maintain high levels of early season humidity.

The Cedars are one of the most awesome biological objects of the world!

It is amazing that a bole of cedar could subsist up to a thousand years!!

Guess it's hard not to feel at peace or at least in awe when you're surrounded by living things that have been around as long as maybe five generations of your family :) They're kind of really big O_O

Yes. They put things in perspective.
