Legally established and spatially defined areas of old growth forest that are identified during landscape unit planning or an operational planning process. Forest licensees are required to maintain legally established OGMAs when preparing FSPs. OGMAs, in combination with other areas where forestry development is prevented or constrained, are used to achieve biodiversity targets. This spatial view will show the most current polygons and excludes sensitive information.

This Non-Legal 'Current' layer is freely downloadable. These are spatially defined areas of old growth forest that are identified during landscape unit planning or an operational planning process. Forest licensees are not required to follow direction provided by non-legal OGMAs when preparing FSPs, and may choose to manage required old growth biodiversity targets in other ways. OGMAs, in combination with other areas where forestry development is prevented or constrained, are used to achieve biodiversity targets.

Forest canopy or over-story species composition provides useful information on forest tree species present at the stand and landscape level. Much of PEI National Park’s forest areas were cleared for settlement and agriculture prior to park establishment and have regenerated with early successional softwood species. Forest types, stand area (ha), percent canopy crown coverage and the proportion (percent) of tree species present within National Park forested areas are determined by remote sensing experts every 10 years, where the proportion of PEI National Parks forest ecosystem that is comprised of softwood species is calculated. The observed percent softwood forested area within PEI National Park is compared against the expected percent of softwood composition generated using available soil information to conjecture original forest types and softwood composition by applying Nova Scotia’s Eco-site Classification.

This dataset is comprised of five map layers:

Watercourse and Wetland Buffers - Buffer zones surrounding mapped watercourses and wetlands where forest activity is regulated on Crown land to maintain water quality and aquatic habitat. Deer Wintering Areas - Forested areas managed to provide severe winter habitat for herds of white tail deer on Crown lands. Other Habitats - Designated forested stands meeting D.N.R.’s structural and spatial criteria for “Old Forest Communities” and “Old Forest Wildlife Habitats”. Formerly Designated Deer Wintering Areas - Formerly designated Deer Wintering Areas which aerial surveys have not detected animal use in for significant time.

Forest ecosystems are a vital component of Nahanni National Park Reserve, covering approximately 80% of the park. Forest vegetation condition is currently a composite of three sub-measures: changes in (1) mature spruce stand growth rates, (2) mature spruce stand mortality rates, and (3) understory vascular species composition. The measure focuses on river valley white and black spruce-dominated stands. Data collection is conducted at permanent plots by field technicians once every ten years.

Contained within the 1st Edition (1906) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the extent of forested regions, using tints of green, in Canada circa 1906. These regions include the Southern forest, Northern forest, and the Cordilleran forest. The map presents general portions of forested areas across the country which has been generally cleared of timber. Displayed is the section of Northern Forest that are less densely wooded; mixed prairie and woodland; Prairie; National Parks and Forest Reserves of the Dominion.
