  • Maintained by Earth advocate David Yarrow, this site is a trove of information about big trees. But the true value of this site is that David helps you understand that these are really more than just big trees; these are part of our natural heritage. Besides advocating the preservation of these resources, he also provides lots of information including the history of and definitions related to old growth forests. For you statistics mongers out there, don't worry, there's something for you too.
