Tongass National Forest
By Charlotte Tanner


May 17, 2009

Mr. Stump you are indeed an articulate, and well written person.

I guess my final question would be: where in the heck is the 95% of the Tongass National Forest that hasn't been logged?

As I said in my first letter, in 1968 POW, and most of SE Alaska was lush and green, it now looks like a mowed off golf course. That's all fine and good, as I got fluffy toilet paper to wipe my bottom from those grand old trees, but where is the other 95% of the forest, if what you say is true, and this area only represents 5% of the Tongass?
