Transitioning to a Second Growth Timber Strategy in SE Alaska

About

This group was created to review data and facilitate conversations about the progress of transitioning to a second growth timber strategy in Tongass National Forest, SE Alaska. 

Based on criteria specified by Mater Engineering and NRDC, the Conservation Biology Institute performed GIS analysis to determine the acreage of second growth forest suitable for harvest on the Craig, Petersburg, Thorne Bay, Wrangell and Ketchikan-Misty Ranger Districts of the Tongass National Forest.

You can explore datasets used in the analysis and maps of the results, including:
1. All suitable second growth areas
2. Open FS-roaded suitable second growth areas
3. Open FS-roaded suitable second growth (overlap) areas
