As a child growing up in the Fraser Valley, Al Carder was awed by the ancient Douglas-fir forests and spent hours staring up at trees that commonly stood over 300 feet high. Sixty years later, after retiring from his career as a plant biologist, he set out to find trees that had transfixed him in his youth. This book reveals outstanding examples from each of the most noteworthy tree species Dr Carder found -- including some that are thousands of years old and over 400 feet high. Featuring over 40 scale drawings, this collection of giant trees outlines the intriguing characteristics of each species as well as the histories of famous trees.
