This map aligns with Map 4 of the BC Old Growth Technical Advisory Panel's Old Growth Maps (OGM) clipped to northwestern BC.
Ancient Forests includes forests that have developed without a stand-replacing disturbance for many centuries or millennia. The Panel mapped forest identified as over 400 years old in ecosystems with rare stand-replacing disturbance and over 250 years with more frequent disturbance. Ancient Forests are also included on the Priority Deferral Map (Map 1).
