1993, the Friends of Caren discovered the remains of the oldest tree on
record in Canada. This is the sample being shown by Key Lay, local resident.
Dendrochronological analysis revealed that it was 1835 years old when cut
(without anyone knowing its antiquity) during the normal course of clearcut
liquidation of the oldgrowth forest in the late 1980s. Only 3 square miles
of the original forest remain. Logging companies have drawn up plans that
will destroy more of this national
treasure. Please act
now to save it.
