The battle over Western Canada's ancient forests at Fairy Creek

A woman, who was among activists trying to stop the logging of old growth timber, embraces the stump of a large tree in a cut block of Tree Farm licence 46 near Port Renfrew, British Columbia, Canada May 17, 2021. The dispute over felling British Columbia's ancient forests has been thrust into the limelight by a months-long blockade of private logging company Teal Jones in the Fairy Creek watershed on western Vancouver Island. Protests that started last August have intensified in recent weeks, leading to more than 150 arrests.

Environmentalists camped out in the dense coastal rainforest say they are fighting Canada's version of the ivory trade. The region features towering old-growth trees, such as cedars, Douglas firs and western hemlocks aged at least 250 years, and in some cases more than a thousand.

The increasingly bitter struggle - taking place in B.C. Premier John Horgan's own electoral district - is playing out amid record-breaking North American lumber prices, and a provincial government promise to review policies allowing old-growth logging.

The stump of a large tree felled years ago is seen overlooking a cut block of Tree Farm licence 46 near Port Renfrew, May 17, 2021. British Columbia used to be the epicenter of the North American lumber trade thanks to its vast untouched forests and it still supplies nearly half of Canada's softwood lumber. Nationally, the industry contributed C$24 billion ($19.8 billion) to Canada's nominal GDP in 2019, and exports worth C$33 billion. But reliance on old-growth logging, which makes up a quarter of B.C.'s annual timber harvest, is becoming an increasing problem as the ancient forests shrink.

Protests are also raising questions over whether environmentalists should tell indigenous people how to manage their resources. The Pacheedaht First Nation has said it does not welcome third-party activism in its territory, while elder Bill Jones (pictured in the Fairy Creek area, May 24, 2021) supports the blockades and says protesters are there at his invitation. He accused the band council of "thinking the forest is a commodity."

Fairy Creek protestor Shambu, 47, (pictured May 23, 2021) said it is "inevitable" old-growth logging will come to an end as the resource disappears and that government funding is needed to help the industry transition to logging and processing planted forests. "Do we leave these loggers to find a living in a dying industry, or do we help them? Either we sort out transition funding now, when there's still a fraction of old growth left, or when there's none," Shambu, who joined the Fairy Creek blockade last August, said.
