This data indicates the location of individual old growth forest stands. It was developed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Old growth forests have developed over a long period of time in the absence of catastrophic events, such timber harvesting, and contain large, old trees of long-lived species. They have ecological, educational, scientific, aesthetic, and spiritual value.
