Forest History

Lasqueti lies in the Coastal Douglas Fir zone, a now rare ecosystem that supports towering old growth.  These forests have been logged heavily, and Lasqueti is no different, with a century-long history of small-scale and industrial logging.

Dick Varney is a local forester.  His research into pre-settlement forest conditions and the  history of logging on Lasqueti is presented in the subpages here.
