The community of Freshwater would benefit immensely by having an adjacent stand of Old Growth trees. The Fern Gully Treesit is on it's fifth year of protecting one the only stands left of old growth left in Freshwater, only one year until the timber harvest plan expires. But what will happen to the grove after the plan expires?
Imagine hiking through a lush grove of Old Growth trees, right next to the town of Freshwater. You may say, "I didn't know that there are any Old Growth trees left on private property and so close to civilization". Fern Gully is an exceptional exception.
