Mossy Tree

Posted by
Kenton (Calgary, Canada) on 28 May 2009 in Plant & Nature.

There are a number of old-growth forests on Vancouver Island and one of them straddles the highway between Nanaimo and Port Alberni. Called Cathedral Grove this area is home to Cedars that are more than 500 years old (with the oldest being more than 800), and subsequently huge. As it is also semi-rain forest there is a lot of moss growing everywhere. This is a relatively new tree and the moss growing on it.

I always appreciate feedback and constructive criticism. Thanks for stopping by.

If you've followed me for a long time you'll notice that I haven't been posting here as regularly. I post in a number of places and I find that it is just too many to keep up with. Most of my work is now being posted at but I'm trying out the new Aminus3 too.
