Tongass National Forest Federal Advisory Committee

In May 2015, the Tongass Advisory Committee achieved consensus on a comprehensive package of draft recommendations regarding an amendment to the Tongass National Forest Plan and implementation strategies to make the transition from old growth to primarily young growth timber management in a way that is ecologically, socially, and economically sustainable. The TAC finalized and submitted its recommendations to the Secretary of Agriculture and Chief of the U.S. Forest Service in December 2015.
