Description
 
The Tongass National Forest, managed by the Forest Service,  in southeast Alaska is the nation劌製 largest national forest. Since the early 20th century, the Tongass has had a timber program based on harvesting old-growth trees, which are generally more than 150 years old. In 2010, the intent was announced to transition the Tongass timber program to primarily harvest young growth, in part to help conserve remaining old-growth forest while maintaining a viable timber industry. This report describes (1) steps the Forest Service has taken to assess whether its planned transition will meet the agency劌製 goal regarding a viable timber industry in southeast Alaska; (2) the status of actions the Forest Service and other federal agencies plan to take to support the timber industry and other economic sectors during the transition; and (3) options for improving the Forest Service劌製 management of the Tongass timber program. Tables and figures. This is a prin ton demand report.
