Why are old-growth forests important?

Answer:

Old-growth forests are a vital part of BC’s economy, history and cultural values. They support a diverse number of species, have immense tourism value, and are an important part of First Nations culture.

The temperate rainforests of BC represent the largest remaining tracts of a globally rare ecosystem covering just 0.5 percent of the planet’s landmass.
