Abstract: Towering Douglas-fir forests once dominated a narrow strip of low-lying land along the southeastern coast of Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and parts of the Lower Mainland and Sunshine Coast.Now only fragments of these unique ecosystems remain in an old-growth state and we are in danger of losing what is left. Since 1848, logging has been a major industry on Vancouver Island. The easily accessible Douglas-fir forests were the first to be cut. Proximity to the ocean (for transport) and gentle topography made logging these forests relatively easy in the days of oxen and axes. At about the same time that logging began, agriculture was also becoming a major industry. Early settlers took advantage of the fertile lowland soils and cleared the land of trees so they could raise crops and livestock.
