The Ɂiy shenchu forest is an old growth forest situated between two clear cuts on the Sunshine Coast, around Trout Lake, near Halfmoon Bay. The forest has large Western red cedars and Douglas fir. Some of the cedars were culturally modified by shishalh Nation people who would take strips of bark for making baskets, weaving and other items. The status of this forest is precarious because it’s protection from logging has not been formalized by the The Sunshine Coast Community Forest (SCCF).
