Tongass National Forest
Knudson Cove Marina
ecologyst apparel - fewer, better
At nearly 17 million acres, the Tongass National Forest holds some of the world’s largest remaining stands of temperate rainforest. Here, a Sitka spruce can grow up to 300 feet in height, and there are iconic beauties amongst the western hemlocks and redcedars. Somewhere deep in these woods, a few old giants still live – protected from logging by the sheer difficulty of clearcutting such a dense and steeply sloped forest.
