Is this Metchosin's largest tree? Photo: Utopia Photo-Blog
Some say that this magnificent specimen is "Metchosin's largest tree". The old-growth Douglas-fir measures 8.69 metres (28.5ft) in circumference, and 2.74 meters (9ft) in diameter. It grows on a hillside near Matheson Lake, east of Sooke.


Matheson Lake Park has several large, scattered, old growth trees that escaped the ecocide that took their contemporaries.
