Coolen Lake, Lunenburg County, NS Crown Land

Score: 85.00 , Status: Crown , Not Protected ,

Coolen Lake, located close to the Lunenburg, Halifax County line is one of the most significant finds in the Maritimes. At first glance the tree sizes are deceiving. Although not particularly large in girth some are ancient. Core samples reveal an average of 271 years with the oldest of three trees sampled coming in at 422 years, a mere seedling around the time of the first reported European contact in Nova Scotia. Coolen Lake is somewhat difficult to access, but with GPS, map and compass and a high clearance vehicle it can be reached.
