"Although new old-growth forests cannot be created, the opportunity exists to restore old-growth characteristics in our current forests ... This pamphlet (PDF) will introduce you to some of the habitat features of old-growth forests, outline management options and resources for restoring these features to your woodlands, and discuss opportunities to realize both economic and ecological benefits from your forest."

We hope to use this space to build the LIF community, share forestry information and educational opportunities, and highlight some of the work being done by LIF practitioners and landowners.

Our format and content are a work in progress, so please reach out to [email protected] with your comments, additions, and suggestions.
