NatureNS VP Donna Crossland’s Comments on the draft Old Growth Forest Policy

“When Nova Scotians are asked what they envision by the term “old growth”, most describe large, old trees. Some mention the unique, open understory, deep shade, or a moss-covered forest floor. They may speak of trees of enormous heights, wildlife habitat, spiritual oases, and inherent beauty. But forests of this nature in the Old Growth Forest Policy likely represent only ~ 0.3 % or less of crown forests. If so, one may ask what is contained in the remaining 8 % of the acclaimed, albeit still low percentage, old growth across Nova Scotia crown forests? Why does the draft Old Growth Forest Policy not indicate how much actual old growth is present across the province?”
