+ The original author did not specify a license.
This map aligns with Map 3 of the BC Old Growth Technical Advisory Panel's Old Growth Maps (OGM) clipped to northwestern BC.
Map 3 shows Prioritized Big-Treed Old Growth, a subset of the Big-treed Old Growth layer (Map 2) identifying the big-treed old growth at highest priority for deferral. Whereas the Big-treed Old Growth layer shows the biggest 10% or 30% of expected amount of old for all ecosystems, this map shows the biggest 3% or 5% forests in ecosystems at lower risk, and 7%, 10% or 30% of expected for ecosystems at higher risk. Prioritized Big-Treed Old Growth is also included as a layer on Priority Deferral Map (Map 1).
