Roadless areas on the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska have exceptional wilderness value and are extremely important to the species who call these areas home. About half of the big, old trees on the Tongass have already been felled for logging, but the Roadless Rule helps protect about half of what is left. Roadless areas are home to salmon, spruce grouse, goshawks, bears, wolves, and many other birds and wildlife. Roadless areas provide humans with opportunities for fishing, hunting, bird-watching, backpacking, and wilderness solitude.
