[Extract] Cecile et al. take issue with our recent Perspective on the rapid global decline of large old trees by asserting that "large" and "old" are not synonymous. Of course, some ancient trees are indeed short in stature [e.g., (1)]. Nonetheless, many of the world's largest trees are also old (more than 500 to 1000 years) (2, 3), so it is correct to highlight this reality.
