    Veridian Ecological's mapping of old forest on Vancouver Island

    Areas in red are old forest at risk of being harvested; areas in green are old forest in either fully protected areas or areas that have some form of logging deferral, like OGMAs and WHAs. Areas in grey are TFLs (the Province provides no data for these, claiming it is "proprietary" even though it is publicly owned land) or private property (like the E&N land grant south of Campbell River along the east side of Vancouver Island.) The larger red areas, or groups of red areas, have pages associated with them in this database.

  • Legal Old Growth Management Areas on Vancouver Island

    This map will take a few moments to load. It allows you to determine whether an area of old growth is currently included in a legal OGMA established by the ministry of forests. Legal OGMAs are not "protected" in the sense that parks or ecological reserves are protected.

    Zoom into or out of the map using the + or - buttons. Pan around the map by clicking and dragging it to another location.
