Kuiu timber sale

Imagine our surprise when we learned last week that the U.S. Forest Service is offering an unexpected timber sale in the Tongass – a sale that directly undermines new direction in the Forest Service’s own 2016 Tongass Plan Amendment, which is expected to go into effect this winter.

But that’s what is happening – the Forest Service is quietly advertising a sale of more than 30 million board feet of timber on North Kuiu Island, a timber sale heavily subsidized by taxpayers that will harm hunters and subsistence users (find some background about the issue on our blog.)

Tell the Forest Service to stop this timber sale before it starts by signing on to our letter to Tongass Forest Supervisor, Earl Stewart.
