The C3 Take
  • Research suggests that ancient trees may be the key to life for forests all over the world.
  • These “trees of life” are usually 10-20 years older other species in the forest and are responsible for regulating and changing the biodiversity and health of surrounding trees.
  • Unfortunately, these trees are hard to cultivate and are disappearing due to deforestation and warming temperatures.
  • The study highlights the need to conserve the world’s forests in a way that is ecologically and economically responsible.

“’This study recalls the urgent need for a global strategy to conserve biodiversity, not only by preserving intact forests, but in particular the small remnant of a few ancient trees that have survived in managed forest landscapes,’ study author Gianluca Piovesan concludes.”
