Aren’t forests a renewable resource?
Although forests can be a renewable resource if managed correctly, old-growth is not renewable.
It can take 200 to 2,000 years for old-growth forests to regenerate to their current state. Once a forest is logged in BC, it’s usually scheduled to be logged every 30 to 80 years. That means that the old-growth we have now, if logged, will not be given time to become old-growth again.
