Ancient Forests
New York Directory

Most of New York's old-growth forests are state-owned in the Adirondack Mountain Preserve, followed by the Catskill Mountains. Many believe New York has more undocumented old-growth than any Eastern state, but much is in small patches on private lands. New York's forests also embrace a uniquely broad range of species diversity and forest community ecotypes.

The list below is compiled mostly from
Old Growth in the East: A Survey
©1993 by Mary Byrd Davis with added information from individuals and survey teams. This online directory is updated quarterly by reports from survey teams. Contact us with information on other possible New York ancient forests. Survey teams evaluate candidate forests, document their status and condition, and incorporate new forests into this online inventory.
