Stop timber sales in Tongass National Forest
The proposal to allow timber sales in the Tongass National Forest would mean the clear-cutting of more than 5,000 acres of old-growth forest. These trees are hundreds of years old, home to the largest concentration of nesting bald eagles and the largest population of black bears. They also serve as a carbon sink and are vital to mitigating climate change.
I urge you to adopt the No Action Alternative to protect the Tongass and all of the wildlife that call the forest home.
