This tall cedar tree, among others, has grown in to a popular tourist attraction in the Pacific Rim National Park in the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve as the cedar trees in this park are hundreds of years old and seem to reach all the way to the sky.
This tree has grown along what is known as the Rainforest Trail, a popular trail in the Pacific Rim National Park, Long Beach Unit, and people come to walk this trail to immerse themselves in nature and to see the famous western red cedar trees. This land is also part of Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve so it cannot be developed and the trees cannot be torn down so hopefully they will grow for hundreds of years more.
The western red cedar grows so well in the Pacific Rim National Park because the climate is that of a temperature rainforest and it is ideal damp growing conditions for trees such as these.
