Old trees have enormous social and ecological value. This session gets at the basics. What are the characteristics of old trees? What ecological roles do they play? How does it develop in the context of active fire regimes? How has the abundance and distribution of old trees changed over time? What are the key threats to old trees in the region? What are management options for protecting old trees in landscapes altered by fire exclusion?
