U.S. Forests Campaign

Our goals

Pew works to protect America’s national forests through the following initiatives:

  • Protect the country’s last undeveloped national forests through implementation of the Roadless Area Conservation Rule, issued in 2001 to preserve roughly 60 million acres of pristine forestlands from most road-building and other industrial activity. We also are working to give long-term protection to the Tongass, a temperate rainforest in southeast Alaska that is America’s largest national forest.
  • Preserve valuable wildlife habitat and water resources for the country’s 193 million acres of national forests and grasslands through strong conservation standards under the National Forest Management Act.
