It’s estimated to be 1,000 years old, with a width at its base of 5 meters (16.5 feet), and a height of 45 meters (147 feet.) Photographer TJ Watt found and photographed the tree which is in the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Watt is co-founder of The Ancient Forest Alliance (AFA), a registered non-profit organisation working to protect British Columbia´s endangered old-growth forests and to ensure a sustainable, value-added, second-growth forest industry.

Founded by Ken Wu and TJ Watt in February 2010, the organisation has quickly grown into British Columbia’s main organisation working toward province-wide legislation to end the logging of endangered old-growth forests.
