Alaska forest open to loggingThe Trump administration on Wednesday finalized a plan to open vast portions of the nation’s largest national forest, the Tongass in Alaska, to logging.

The move lifts longstanding restrictions on tree harvests in the southeastern Alaska forest and is in line with President Donald Trump’s agenda to roll back environmental regulations that he says are roadblocks to industry.

It marked a victory for Alaska state officials who petitioned for the change because they said a Clinton-era rule that banned logging, roads and mining in undeveloped forests has cost Alaskans jobs.
