B.C.’s old growth forests are critically important ecologically, economically and culturally – and are typically between 200 to 2,000 years in age.⠀
These ecosystems are in crisis as the last remaining areas of old growth are still being clearcut. If these ancient ecosystems are destroyed we likely lose them forever. Second-growth tree plantations don’t adequately replicate the original old-growth forests.⠀
The B.C. government is reviewing the way it manages old-growth forests and is seeking your feedback via email and an online questionnaire until Jan 31st.⠀
Ancient Forest Alliance has a guide and suggested points to help you raise your voice for ancient forests.
