List of Old-Growth Forests Under Threat

Post by Matt Markworth » Mon Feb 06, 2017 7:05 pm

NTS,

I'm currently putting together and plan on maintaining a list of publicly-owned threatened old-growth forests in the United States and am interested to hear which ones you may know about. I'd rather hear about a forest even if its old-growth status is debatable based on varying definitions, so in that sense consider an inclusive definition of old-growth.

Of course, one could argue that every old-growth forest is under some type of conceivable threat, but this list will be for near-term threats from things like logging, development, etc.

I have several on the list already, but will hold off on posting them here for now so as not to stifle any immediate ideas that you may have.

Thank you,
Matt
