Save Alaska's ancient trees

Action: Stop Deforestation

February 12, 2016   Action Alert ID# 336

 

Anyone who's spent time in an old-growth forest knows what it means to stand in awe -- of time and mass on another scale, life in a different hue.

That's why we must save one of America's most prized national treasures -- southeast Alaska's Tongass National Forest -- from a host of feller bunchers, harvesters, skidders and other forestry equipment waiting to turn these temperate rainforest trees into boards and pulp.

Along with climate change, habitat destruction is putting the Tongass in peril, as well as the bears, salmon and rare Alexander Archipelago wolves who call it home. And a new plan from the Forest Service falls well short of fixing these problems -- instead of ending old-growth logging now, the agency proposes to let it go on for 15 more years.

Join us in asking for an immediate end to old-growth logging in the Tongass and a better plan to protect the wildlife habitat and carbon-rich forests of southeast Alaska.
