Lumberjacks toil from dawn to dusk conquering rugged terrain transforming the mighty tree to a floating log, girded in their red plaid, the scent of tobacco emanating from their pipes.

Glorified for their toughness and grit, surveying the land - thunk, thunk, thunk goes the axe in their ongoing dance with the wilderness.

1871: Hollow Tree’s 1871 series evokes the scents during an era of 1800’s where the pioneers and prospectors trekked throughout British Columbia arriving from San Francisco on their way to the Klondike where tales of mountains of gold awaited them. Where lumberjacks toiled from dawn to dusk, and the Raven graced the skies as ghost upon the forest floors, while Voyageurs paddled their canoes to Hudson Bay Forts with trading goods such as tobacco. This province was becoming what we know today, Beautiful British Columbia.
BC joined confederation in 1871. Ushered in by our Father of Confederation: Amor De Cosmos, Amor negotiated that British Columbia would join the Dominion of Canada only if the Railroad was built to the Pacific Ocean.

Amor was a pioneer in that he also created the first forestry, farming and fisheries policies in 1872. Our first land-use and environmental policy.
