DescriptionThe following is a report on the status of Candidate Old-growth (hereafter identified as COG) on National Forest System administered lands in California in the past, a t present, and in the immediate fhture. These r e s u l t s are based on information that may be speculative and contain inconsistencies, and therefore must be treated with caution. COG on these lands has declined substantially since 1900 or about the time the National Forest System was established. Estimated declines are from about 4 million acres in 1900 t o about 2 million acres a t present--a decline of about 50 percent.
