Jobs Trump Conservation: Timber Sale in Roadless Tongass Approved

Date : 16th July 2009, Source : ENS



KETCHIKAN, Alaska, July 16, 2009 (ENS) - In a roadless area of Alaska's Tongass National Forest, the U.S. Forest Service has awarded the first timber sale under the new so-called Vilsack policy. Due to a series of lawsuits and conflicting court orders on the Roadless Rule, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced in May that he would personally review and approve timber sales in roadless areas across the nation. The Orion North timber sale awarded Monday to Pacific Log and Lumber of Ketchikan will produce some 3.8 million board feet of timber from 381 acres in Thorne Arm on Revillagigedo Island near Ketchikan.
