In November 2023, Dovetail Partners released a report titled, "Old growth forests: How much is enough?". In the report, we explored the different definitions of "old growth" applied globally and in regions of North America and Europe, including their scientific basis. The report considered why we need old growth forests, and conversely, why we do not, and included a discussion of old growth forest protection and management. We concluded with a discussion how much old growth is 'enough', how we can create more, and how our understanding of the relationship between people and forests is evolving.

We asked the following individuals to respond to the report, "Old growth forests: How much is enough?", and compiled their feedback into one document.
