Step back in time on a walking tour of the city's last ancient trees, and discover the stories and secret locations of these hidden centuries old giants. Encounter Canada's largest known maple tree, towering 600+ year old douglas firs, and majestic sprawling cedars nearing a 1000 years old. 


Experience the last remaining old growth in the city's historic Stanley Park. Follow our expert guide to these natural wonders, including towering douglas firs, wide and wondrous cedars, and the largest known maple tree in all of Canada. As we marvel at these ancient trees, we'll also learn about the ecological importance of old-growth forests and the threats they face today. You'll be told about the park's history and the original Coast Salish inhabitants who called this area home for thousands of years before it was an urban park. Many of the trees on this tour have been growing for half a millennium, long before the founding of Vancouver.
