PETERSBURG, AK The U.S. Forest Service’s top official in Alaska has reversed an agency decision for a large timber sale planned for Etolin Island near Wrangell. The Navy sale could mean a harvest of 72 million board feet of timber and over eight miles of new permanent roads on the island, about 22 miles southwest of Wrangell. But the sale will need further environmental review for the planned harvest to go forward.
