Old Growth Forest Resources

Old growth forest areas are disappearing fast in British Columbia. Only about 2.7% of large old growth remains and even that is being liquidated by logging companies. This is happening with the blessing of the BC government and with enforcement by court injunctions. The BC government promised to act on the 14 recommendations of the Old Growth Strategic Review report. However it has failed to act on these recommendations and is continuing business as usual.

These old growth forests are critical in protecting us against the worst of climate and weather effects. But they are being lost faster than ever as the BC government is helping corporations gain access to very high value trees. There appears to be no plan for when old growth runs out.

Reports on old growth forests are helpful when writing to or talking to government officials and politicians. They are also useful when writing letters to the editor or when debating the issue with others.
