The Forest Service just began a program to phase out logging of the Tongass' huge, old growth trees, and the logging roads that go with them. Most of the trees are several centuries old. But the program, as proposed, could take as long as 15 years. (a lot of damage can be done in 15 years)
The Tongass is a rare rainforest in a temperate climate. America's only one! Right now, much of the Tongass has already been logged and roaded (essentially ruined for several hundred years). Tell the National Forest Service or your congressman to speed up the program, or there may be nothing left worth saving 15 years from now.
