An old-growth forest ? also termed primary forest, virgin forest, primeval forest, late seral forest, or (in Britain) ancient woodland ? is a forest that has attained great age without significant disturbance and thereby exhibits unique ecological features and might be classified as a climax community.1 Old-growth features include diverse tree-related structures that provide diverse wildlife habitat that increases the bio-diversity of the forested ecosystem.
The concept of diverse tree structure includes multi-layered canopies and canopy gaps, greatly varying tree heights and diameters, and diverse tree species and classes and sizes of woody debris. Old-growth forests are economically valuable, and logging of these forests has been a point of contention between the logging industry and environmentalists.
