Tongass National Forest (TNF) Management Plan

As originally announced in May 2010, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack unilaterally amended the 2008 Amended TLMP by prohibiting timber harvest within Inventoried Roadless Areas (IRAs). The Secretary and his subordinates pledged to provide new jobs in renewable energy, habitat restoration, and recreation and tourism. Related Links material compares the commitments given during the entire 2008 Tongass Land Management Plan (hereinafter 2008 Amended TLMP) versus the commitments delivered in the draft ROD. As set out in the linked materials we object to the failure of the entire Transition Plan to meet, and often not even mention, commitments previously made in the 2008 Amended TLMP.
