... in mature or senescent trees, in logs or leaf litter. These findings suggest that the requirements of several species of terrestrial mammals are best met by large, mature trees and a complex ground layer that includes logs and leaf litter. Some management recommendations are that: 1. logging cycles...

Previously, old growth was deemed to occur when the senescence of Mountain Ash trees typically begins, especially the development of hollows (120-150 years old) (Lindenmayer et al. 2017a). However, trees must now be 250 years to be considered to be old growth (VicForests 2013; Victorian...
