A Giant Sitka Spruce
Copy of Ektachrome Photo by Phil Vecqueray
This giant Sitka Spruce tree measured 17 ft. 7 inches (5.4 m) across the butt. The first 24 ft. (7.3 m) log contained sufficient lumber to build a two bedroom home - a small hotel could be constructed from the entire tree. Estimated age of this spruce is 463 years. The tree was felled over 40 years ago at Juskatla Camp on the Queeen Charlotte Islands of British Columbia. The saw used was a Homelite 9-26.
