SE Alaska Could Foot Bill for Timber Survey in Tongass

Southeast Alaska communities are being asked to foot the bill for a survey of second-growth timber in the Tongass National Forest. The Juneau Assembly got the ball rolling recently when it promised $10,000. The tree survey is estimated to cost $80,000 dollars.  It will help Southeast’s struggling timber industry make the transition from old growth to new.
