Although old-growth forests were once a dominant component of some pre-industrial forest landscapes, even-aged forest management in the boreal forest has led to a scarcity of old-growth stands. But what do we actually know about old-growth forests? Canadian Forest Service researchers are working to increase overall understanding of these forests and address certain misconceptions about them.
