Okay so I am starting to get a little confused on all the terms that deal with deforestation. I know the difference between clear-cutting, selection-cutting, and strip-cutting, but I also sort of remember some one saying that it was best to cut down old-growth forests rather than second-growth forest. This doesn’t seem right to me because old-growth forest have so much more biodiversity and is the habitat for many species. I might have just made this up…. haha but does anyone know which is the best option: old growth or second-growth or are they just as equally bad for biodiversity and the rest of the environment?
