English term or phrase: old growth
The area contains old growth jarrah trees and it has gathered 500 signatures protesting against the logging.

I am looking for the correct term in Japanese for 'old growth'. Any help appreciated :)

Reference information:
オールドグロス林[old growth forest]
樹齢200年から1,000年の樹木が大勢を占める、生態系として成熟した森林。日本で使われている「原生林」という言葉は、天然のままで人手の加えられていない森林を指すが、オールドグロースと原生林は、ほぼ同じものと考えてよい。
