    but if other acres get opened up in the future.

    Look people, logging in Alaska is pretty bleak.  Between very strictly controlled access to most of the state's harvestable lumber (by virtue of being in federal lands or national parks/reserves/refuges) and several years of increasing bark beattle infestations, it's tough being a logger in Alaska.

    This was a little bone thrown to a hurting industry.  This is not the end of environmentalism as we know it.

    You are entitled to express your opinion. But you are NOT entitled to agreement.
