Judge Halts Trump’s Tongass Logging Plans


A reprieve for America’s salmon forest.

A federal judge in Alaska has blocked the Trump administration’s plans to open the Tongass National Forest to logging operations due to oversight in the federal government’s plans for the proposed 1.8 million-acre project.

“The Forest Service’s evaluation of the project’s maximum impacts does not evaluate the project’s actual expected impacts,” U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason wrote in a 50-page ruling Wednesday.
