Tongass Helicopter Managers check on repeaters around the Tongass NF. Our repeaters allow us to communicate while out in the field using Forest Service radios.

Since May 24, 2014, the Tongass National Forest has been working on a proposed amendment to the 2008 Tongass Land and Resource Management Plan (Tongass Forest Plan Amendment). The Forest Service developed five alternatives for detailed analysis in response to the significant issues, including the No Action Alternative. Alternative 5 (Preferred Alternative) is based on the recommendations from the Tongass Advisory Committee (TAC), a formally established Federal Advisory Committee that was chartered to advise the Secretary and Chief on transitioning the Tongass National Forest to young-growth forest management.
