Every year, the same question: Was the Vancouver landscape really as lush last year as it seems to be now?

Answer: Nope.  Last year, the trees here on the 1700-block Robson weren’t as high, nor the canopies as thick and lush.   Just a decade or so, these trees were saplings; they didn’t block the signage on the shops or the highrises behind.
And now, here in the transitional rain forest of the northwest Pacific coast, they do.


  1. Hello Gordon… apologies for usurping this channel to contact you, but I’d like to connect for a book I’m writing. Please drop me a line at andre@thenextcourse.ca.
    BTW good ideas, like saplings, grow best with encouragement. Thanks for yours.
