The 1000-year-old Hollow Tree in Stanley Park, one of the oldest and most famous landmarks of Vancouver, BC, Canada, is seen on April 29, 2012. The tree, which is located along the west side of Stanley Park Drive, has attracted visitors and dignitaries since the park was opened in 1888. The Hollow Tree is a cultural heritage resource listed on the Vancouver Heritage Register and the Vancouver Heritage Tree Inventory.

The Hollow Tree has played a vital role in Vancouver’s tourism industry since the city was founded. Each generation of Vancouverites have iconic photos taken with the tree. Everything from an elephant, to horse-drawn carriages and the earliest automobiles have been photographed with the tree.

Today, the 1000-year-old stump of this Western Red Cedar tree still remains one of the most photographed landmarks in the city. The Hollow Tree was damaged by a severe windstorm in December 2006 and was leaning forward at a dangerous angle. The tree was slated for removal due to safety concerns. In 2009 the Hollow Tree Conservation Society stepped forward with a plan to stabilize the tree in a project funded entirely by private donations. The tree was restored in October 2011 and thus began a new chapter in its long history.

Stanley Park is a 404.9 hectare (1,001 acre) urban park bordering Vancouver Downtown. It was opened in 1888 by David Oppenheimer in the name of Lord Stanley of Preston, the Governor-General of Canada.

It is more than 10 percent larger than New York City’s Central Park and almost half the size of London’s Richmond Park. The park attracts over eight million visitors every year.
