The biggest tree

On the outskirts of Kitimat’s industrial area, in a newly created wasteland, we found this huge tree stump.  Its body was lying a few meters away.  The rumour is that “they” cleared this area in preparation for the new LNG project, and in the process, cut down this four hundred year old tree… even though it wasn’t blocking anything.  Now it just sits on a gravel road.

my husband lying across the tree stump - he is stretched across the whole thing, and his head doesn't even touch the other side (he's 6'2")
