List of Old-Growth Forests Under Threat

I'm currently putting together and plan on maintaining a list of publicly-owned threatened old-growth forests in the United States and am interested to hear which ones you may know about. I'd rather hear about a forest even if its old-growth status is debatable based on varying definitions, so in that sense consider an inclusive definition of old-growth.

Of course, one could argue that every old-growth forest is under some type of conceivable threat, but this list will be for near-term threats from things like logging, development, etc.

I have several on the list already, but will hold off on posting them here for now so as not to stifle any immediate ideas that you may have.

Thank you,
