WHISTLER IS ON THE EASTERN EDGE of the Pacific Northwest’s magnificent temperate rainforest, an ecosystem that is globally significant for the antiquity of its forests, for its unique species, and as a carbon sink that helps slow climate change.
Logging and urban development have removed vast areas of forest at lower elevations. Pockets of spectacular old and ancient trees nonetheless remain throughout the Whistler area.
Whether you are travelling by foot, bike or vehicle, use this map to explore the oldest, most charismatic, and most accessible ancient trees in Whistler.
Mapping of Whistler’s ancient and old forest is a project of awarewhistler.org.
