Welcome, The Tongass National Forest, the nation's largest national forest, covers most of Southeast Alaska, surrounding the famous Inside Passage. It offers unique chances to view eagles, bears, spawning salmon, and the breath-taking vistas of "wild" Alaska. You can take a sled-dog ride on a glacier, hike boardwalk trails, fish in streams or the ocean, or just relax at a remote cabin.

2008 Tongass Land Management Plan Amendment

2008 TLMP Amendment

The Tongass National Forest announced that it will be amending the 2008 Tongass Land Management Plan.  A five year review of the current plan found that changes need to be made in order to meet the forest’s goals of transitioning to a predominantly young growth-based timber program in the next 10-15 years.  The Tongass has also launched a federal advisory committee (Tongass Advisory Committee) to provide advice and recommendations to the Forest Service on the transition to young growth timber, including the forest plan amendment.
