Rainforest Tree Size

Large tree, Belize.

The trees in the rainforest are huge! This is me standing next to a tree in the rainforests of Belize.

Big tree, Tikal

This is a large kapok tree in the Tikal Biosphere Preserve, Guatemala. These trees are awesome! Is it the heat that allows them to get so big? Probably it is just the fact that no one has cut them down!

cedar, British Columbia

This is an old-growth cedar in the cold rainforests of British Columbia (Vancouver Island) Canada. It was as awesome as any tropical rainforest tree I have ever seen! This is why even in our own countries it is important to try to save these magnificent old-growth trees!
