Old growth forest in the Oregon Cascades.

Any discussion of forestry in Oregon usually gets around to old growth forests.  As you follow the debate over cutting or preserving them, you may wonder how to FIND them. 

The group Oregon Wild and one of its staffers address that query, in the book Oregon's Ancient Forests: A Hiking Guide.  Author Chandra LeGue provides details, pictures, and more on places with ancient trees, from the damp forests of the coast to the high and dry areas further east.  Chandra LeGue visits with highlights from the book and her travels.
