support High conservation value forest nomination
The Division of Forestry is accepting comments on IFA’s proposal to nominate the Back Country Area in Morgan-Monroe and Yellowwood State Forests as High Conservation Value Forest. Research conducted by dozens of Indiana scientists documented more than 3,000 species thriving in the Back Country Area. This forest is about 110 years old on average, with some trees more than 200 years old. Designation as High Conservation Value Forest would allow this area to become Old Growth Forest within the next 40 years if managed without timber harvests.
