Trees in British Columbia's South Coast
Mark Merlino - Home page

Alders, they grow fast, quickly cover
any clearings. But they make good fire
wood.
In the south coast of BC there is a
species of
Maple with beautiful large
leaves.
The Arbutus is one of my
favourite trees. It sheds its bark
and is an evergreen deciduous
trees.
The Hemlock is a very strong tree. My
sense is that this tree is like the royalty of
the forest.
The Douglas Fir is without
question the strongest tree
in the forest. They live
long and have strong
wood.
The Cedar is a resilient tree. There
are many Cedars in the forest and
they are the tree of the south coast.
