Stanley Park's Hollow Tree Reopens!

Stanley Park's Hollow Tree is one of the most photographed attractions in Vancouver and it was an obligatory stop for visitors from around the World for decades. In 2006 this local landmark was almost completely uprooted during the most damaging windstorm to hit the region and the tree was slated to be removed until donations saved it. For the last few years the tree has been straightened and strengthened and is now reopened for the enjoyment of the public!

This weekend we had the opportunity to take a walk through the Park and to my amazement the Hollow Tree has Workers stabilizing and fixing the Hollow Tree in Stanley Park.been finally reopened to the public!

The Hollow Tree is an eight hundred year old stump which has an immense hollow making it one of the most popular spots for photographs in the Park for the last century. Horse and carts, cars and dozens of people have all fit in the trunk for a variety of interesting shots to show how large the tree was and the Hollow Tree was a stop for many visitors to the park for decades. The tree was severely damaged in the 2006 Windstorm and was slated to be removed as it was a safety hazard until a proposal was passed and a quarter of a million dollars was raised to save the tree.

For years the tree has been closed off to the public and recently workers have righted the tree with a crane, stabilized it with concrete and fixed the surrounding ground to prepare it for the public - this weekend the fence was taken away!

So, come and take your photo in the same spot where dignitaries, locals and tourists have stood for the last century at the foot of the Hollow Tree and enjoy this Vancouver treasure!
