New timber sale proposed near Petersburg

By November 1, 2011Southeast
The U.S. Forest Service is considering a new timber sale on Kupreanof Island, west of Petersburg. In October, the agency released a draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Tonka Timber Sale, which could provide up to 53-million board feet of timber to area sawmills. The logging could also fund some second growth thinning and fish habitat work. Joe Viechnicki reports.
