"The Hollow Tree!" Top 5 Page for this destination Stanley Park Tip by jamiesno

Stanley Park, Vancouver: 165 reviews and 301 photos

  Me inside the Hollow Tree
by jamiesno

This now hollowed out stump with nurse trees growing from the crevices of its woody skeleton was once a thriving cedar tree. At one time its girth measured 18.3 meters (60 feet). In the early 1900s this site was a very popular locaton for photographs either with horses and buggies backed into the hollow or those newfangled contraptions automobiles! Apparently lightening done this damage to the tree. It is located in Stanley Park, it is distinctly pointed out on all maps of the park. It is enroute to either Third Beach or Prospect Point depending on the direction you are taking. You can drive to this area of the park if you want to do that via Stanley Park Drive.

Please leave your comments and rate my tips, I love reading them. All the best and happy travels!
