While visiting Seattle in early April, I had an intuitive TreeGirl hit that there must be some Big trees nearby. I tuned into my TreeGirl radar, and with the help of the internet, I found them. Over the ferry and through the woods to the beautiful wet, west coast of British Columbia I went. Although it was not my genetic grandmother's house I was visiting, one could call these ancient trees are our grandmothers, and indeed they are for the First nations peoples who have depended upon them for thousands of years.
