Inspired by the French Candian voyageurs who traveled the dominion in brigades of five, laden with valuable trade goods delivering their bounty to the Hudson Bay Trading Posts.

1871: Hollow Tree’s 1871 series evokes the scents during an era of the 1800s 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 a 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 the 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. The Railroad was paramount and historical for the Dominion of Canada and it took 10 years to reach 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.
