    I didn't understand either (or if Ron's kidding, then just I didn't understand). The first photo was the Queen Charlottes tree and the second is the vista without the tree? Is that the dead tree on the ground?

    Yes, precisely. Maybe you didn't see the caption's "Golden Spruce 1995" and "Golden Spruce 2010"

    Sorry if it wasn't clear enough. And yes that is the dead Golden Spruce in the second photo taken 3 weeks ago.

    How are the new replacement specimen(s) doing? Any photos of them?

    Haven't got a clue, and they made no mention of it on the signs at the trail entrance. I'm sure i'll be near dead by the time it grows tall enough to see among the other trees.

    Hi, Dorian (BIG D) -

    I'm a Vancouver filmmaker working on a documentary project about The Golden Spruce. I'm searching for archival photography and video of the tree and would like to chat with you about your "Golden Spruce 1995" photo posted here in the UBC Botanical Garden forum. What's the best way to get in touch? My direct email sean [at] nootkastreet [dot] co. I'll also send you a private message through the forum. Looking forward to chatting.
