    B.C.'s Coastal Douglas Fir ecosystem is limited to a small part of southeastern Vancouver Island, several islands in the Strait of Georgia, and a narrow strip on the mainland. Spatial patterns and competition of tree species in a Douglas-fir chronosequence on Vancouver Island. Ecography While the successional dynamics and large-scale structure of Douglas-fir forest in the Pacific Northwest region is well studied, the fine-scale spatial characteristics at the stand level are still poorly understood. Here Cited by:

    The Douglas-fir is not an apex plant species despite it's massive size. The largest known Douglas-fir is located on Vancouver Island near Port Renfrew, and the oldest specimen was also found on Vancouver Island with rings. The tree was knocked down in a storm in the winter of , giving the opportunity to date it. Vegetation Of The Douglas-Fir Region Purchased by the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture for official use. J. F. Franklin, Chief Plant Ecologist, PNW Forest and Range Experiment Station, U.S. Forest Service, Corvallis, Oregon Reprinted from "Forest Soils of the Douglas-Fir Region,": a book developed by the members of the Northwest File Size: 8MB.

    Great soil groups characteristic of the range of coastal Douglas-fir include Haplohumults (Reddish Brown Lateritics) of the order Ultisols, Dystrochrepts (Brown Lateritics), Haplumbrepts (Sols Bruns Acides) of the order Inceptisols, Haplorthods (Western Brown Forest soils) of the order Spodosols. The Capital Regional District (CRD) is the regional government for 13 municipalities and three electoral areas on southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, serving more than , people. Guided by its Board, the CRD works collaboratively to build a vibrant, livable and sustainable region. Read more >>.

Water relations and forest distribution in the Douglas-fir region on Vancouver Island by Canada. Dept. of Agriculture. Forest Biology Division; McMinn, R. GPages: In an evaluation of the role of water relations in forest distribution and growth in the Douglas-fir region on Vancouver Island, a section of the Nanaimo River Valley, lying from five to twelve miles inland from the east coast, was chosen as a suitable study area to exemplify conditions in the central mountains and on the eastern side of southern Vancouver Island.

Water relations and forest distribution in the Douglas-fir region on Vancouver Island /Cited by: The Coastal Douglas-fir Zone covers a small area of B.C.'s south coast, including a band of lower elevation along southeastern Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and a fringe of mainland along Georgia Strait.

Victoria, Nanaimo and Powell River are major urban centres in the area. Subzone/Variants in the CDF Zone - Tree Species Descriptions. The Coastal Douglas-fir (CDF) is the smallest of the 14 BC ecosystems listed in the Biogeoclimatic Ecosystem Classification system.

It is restricted to low elevations along southeastern Vancouver Island, from Bowser to Victoria, the Gulf Islands south of Cortes Island, and a narrow strip along the Sunshine Coast near Halfmoon Bay.

The easily accessible Douglas-fir forests were the first to be cut. Proximity to the ocean (for trans- port) and gentle topography made logging these for- ests relatively easy in the days of oxen and axes.

At about the same time that logging began,agriculture was also becom- ing a major in- dustry. Coastal Douglas-fir Next to Garry Oak, this ecological community is one of the rarest forest types in BC and the smallest in distribution, occurring along the coast only from southeast Vancouver Island, Sunshine Coast, Howe Sound and patches along the Metro Vancouver coastline to the Olympic Mountains in Washington State.

How the Douglas-fir tree put Vancouver on the map Decades before Vancouver was an official city, settlers began razing forests to sell massive old growth Douglas-fir trees.

Phantom orchid (Cephalanthera austiniae) is a pure white, strikingly beautiful orchid that are found only in mature, old growth forests.

Pseudotsuga menziesii, commonly known as Douglas fir, Douglas-fir and Oregon pine, is an evergreen conifer species native to western North variety, the coast Douglas fir, grows along the Pacific Ocean from central British Columbia south to central California.

The Great Journey of Sir Douglas Fir was inspired by the travels of a year-old fir tree that was knocked to the ground during a storm and then taken across Canada to take its place as.Pacific Rim National Park: Rain Forest.

The temperate rainforest of Pacific Rim is an obvious indicator of the environmental forces at work in the park. Wherever you look in the park, whatever the season, the dominating colour is green.Massive Trees on Vancouver Island Vancouver Island is located in the temperate rainforest biome, with the mild climate and high rainfall combining to produce groves of massive old-growth trees.

Some of the tallest stretch over 90 meters into the sky, while others measure as much as 20 meters in circumference.
