  • 2022-04 Rachel Holt presentation at UBC


    Rachel Holt presents Old Growth Forests: What is the path forward? to alumni of UBC’s Faculty of Forestry.

    In her presentation, Holt refers to a critique produced by Veridian Ecological in response to COFI’s claim (through a study authored by forester Cam Brown) that 29.3 percent of all old forest in the province has a site index greater than 20 metres. You can read that response here.

    In the section on “Jobs” in her UBC presentation, Holt refers to the “number of jobs per cubic metre.” She doubtless meant to say the “number of jobs per thousand cubic metres”. An excellent analysis of what the big issues are right now regarding continued logging of old-growth forests and the logging industrys denialism.

    Following Holt’s and Brown’s presentations at UBC, they got together to uncover common ground. Holt wrote a short paper outlining that common ground. This is also useful in understanding the issues around the amount of remaining old growth. You can read that paper here.
