Forest Type and Age

Animals and plants rely on forests of different ages for habitat. If Saskatchewan has too many young forests, caribou have nowhere to live. If there are too many old forests, the risk of wildfires becomes much higher. Older forests are also much more susceptible to disease. Ultimately, our forests are to be managed in a way that protects habitat, recreational opportunities and economic growth.
