      These, too, are products of our forests. Logging is planned with care to protect sensitive areas. Declining profitability of logging progressively less valuable forests combined with political and social changes led to the closing of both pulp mills by Though other species may be negatively impacted many only decrease in population size, and a compositional change in habitats can be observed.

      But forests are living systems - trees grow up, grow old and die, whether they are harvested or not. Unassisted regeneration takes place rapidly in Alaska's coastal forests, seedlings growing as much as 4 feet per year for the first 20 years. Many topics were covered, including the deep and complex interdependency of these coastal forests to salmon and other marine resources, and the amazing patchiness and complexity of this stunning landscape. Most of the timber remaining in the developed areas was left for a specific conservation purpose such as a stream buffer, winter deer habitat, scenic quality, etc. The world demand continues to exceed the supply. Current Pending Legislation and Day to Day Tasks: Most recently, government and public and political interests in oil and natural gas has become a controversial docket item for the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, in part because of the lucrative nature of the resource but also due to the large quantities of oil located on land managed by the department.

      Immediately after this discussion, many expedition members joined me on the wooden sun-deck where I was able to continue to answer questions and point out examples ecological patterns, and examples of logging activities that were clearly visible as the ship passed through the narrow Wrangell Narrows, just south of Petersburg. No logging is allowed in these areas. Length to 8 feet denotes a female, males rarely over 4. Slow, short growing periods cause the trees to have tight growth rings, making the wood prized for strength and delicate beauty. Paper and lumber are easily recognized, but other products such as cellophane, rayon and fillers for everything from toothpaste to ice cream to chewing gum may not be. How uniform is it?

In contrast to most forests in the lower 48 these rainforests are not destroyed by catastrophic fires, floods or similar events.
