“Wildwood Ecoforest serves an example of what forests on Vancouver Island might have looked like had government not engaged in a management policy of old-growth elimination and the replacement of these magnificent forests by short rotation, mono-species stands. In the face of climate change, this decision will have devastating consequences.”
Barry Gates, Ecoforestry Institute Society Co-Chair
EIS Supports BC GREEN Party Call for a Moratorium on Old-Growth Logging
The Ecoforestry Institute Society is pleased to support the BC Green Party's call for government to halt old-growth logging in BC. Please add your voice to their call for public support.
EIS treasures the old-growth forest found within Wildwood and manages it within the parameters of the ecoforestry model. These trees tower over ecosystems that have thrived for centuries, a legacy that EIS is careful to preserve and protect. EIS is in the forefront of building a working ecoforestry model that embraces environmental, economic, social and cultural values.
