Protect the Tongass from logging: Keep the Roadless Rule!

The timber industry has its sights on the oldest trees in America’s largest national forest, and this administration is only too happy to let them get their way.

They’re pushing to remove a rule that protects the remaining roadless areas of the Tongass National Forest. Their plan to open vast swaths of the Tongass to build logging roads would be nothing short of catastrophic for the wildlife who live there.

Time is running out to protect this forest. Loggers have already cut down half of the largest old growth trees in the Tongass, and much of what remains will be imperiled if they succeed in opening up the roadless areas.

Save the Tongass: Tell the Department of Agriculture to maintain the Roadless Rule and protect this forest from destructive, unsustainable logging!
