The 6th Eastern Old Growth Forest Conference
The 2004 conference was dedicated to furthering the scientific understanding and conservation of old growth forests in the eastern US and Canada and promoting sound forest management, informed by an understanding of old growth forest dynamics. The conference featured scientific research that emerged since the prior conference of 2000 and provided a forum for discussing the identification, protection and use of old growth forests on a working landscape.
Specifically, conference objectives were:
To disseminate information to conservation groups and the forest products industry about old growth forests
To explore the dynamics of old growth forest ecosystems in a way that can inform sustainable forestry practices
To provide a forum for discussing the ways in which the land conservation community can partner with the forest products industry in conserving forest lands.
