Southeast Alaska Native Allotment Owners

The Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska (Tlingit & Haida) is developing planning documents for Native allotments in the Southeast Alaska Management Unit.  Planning documents will include a timber inventory report, a forest management plan, and initial environmental assessment.

In 2017 and 2018, contract Foresters visited many allotments throughout the Southeast Management Unit and collected forest data, with a summary inventory report now in process.    A forest management plan and environmental assessment, based on this field work, are also being drafted.

The decision for forest management of Native allotments rests with the owner(s), which is then implemented by the tribal forestry service providers. The forest management plan will address potential commercial timber harvest as well as recommended Best Management Practices.

The planning process also involves gathering information from the allotment owners about what their issues and concerns are, specific to forest management, and including those comments in the environmental assessment.

If you are a Native allotment owner, we would like to hear from you. Gunalchéesh, Háw’aa, Thank you,
