英属哥伦比亚是加拿大第三大省,无论是面积还是人口都是如此。它几乎是德克萨斯州的1.5倍大,从美国边境向北延伸了800英里(1280公里)。它包括加拿大的整个西海岸和沿海岛屿。不列颠哥伦比亚省大部分地区多山,南北之间有很长的崎岖山脉。甚至沿海的岛屿也是几千年前存在的山脉的遗迹。在上一个冰河时代,这些山脉被冰川冲刷,直到大部分被淹没在海底。它的山峰现在显示为散布在海岸上的岛屿。西南沿海地区属湿润温和的海洋性气候。从西部吹向内陆的海风被流经太平洋的暖流加热。因此,冬天的平均气温在零度以上,夏天则比较温和。这些温暖的西风也从海洋携带水分。从海岸向内陆吹来的太平洋风遇到了海岸山脉和落基山脉的山脉屏障。当它们上升穿越山脉时,风被冷却,它们的水分开始以雨的形式落下来。在一些西坡上,每年大约有200英寸(500厘米)的降水。不列颠哥伦比亚省一半以上的地区森林茂密。在降雨量充足的山坡上,巨大的道格拉斯冷杉高耸入云。这些森林巨人通常长到300英尺(90米)高,直径可达10英尺(3米)。这些树生产的木材比北美任何其他种类的树都多。铁杉、红雪松和香脂冷杉是在英属哥伦比亚发现的其他树种。

British Columbia is the third largest Canadian province, both in area and population. It is nearly 1.5 times as large as Texas, and extends 800 miles (1,280km) north from the United States border. It includes Canada’s entire west coast and the islands just off the coast. Most of British Columbia is mountainous, with long rugged ranges running north and south. Even the coastal islands are the remains of a mountain range that existed thousands of years ago. During the last Ice Age, this range was scoured by glaciers until most of it was beneath the sea. Its peaks now show as islands scattered along the coast. The southwestern coastal region has a humid mild marine climate. Sea winds that blow inland from the west are warmed by a current of warm water that flows through the Pacific Ocean. As a result, winter temperatures average above freezing and summers are mild. These warm western winds also carry moisture from the ocean. Inland from the coast, the winds from the Pacific meet the mountain barriers of the coastal ranges and the Rocky Mountains. As they rise to cross the mountains, the winds are cooled, and their moisture begins to fall as rain. On some of the western slopes almost 200 inches (500cm) of rain fall each year. More than half of British Columbia is heavily forested. On mountain slopes that receive plentiful rainfall, huge Douglas firs rise in towering columns. These forest giants often grow to be as much as 300 feet (90m) tall, with diameters up to 10 feet (3m). More lumber is produced from these trees than from any other kind of tree in North America. Hemlock, red cedar, and balsam fir are among the other trees found in British Columbia.
