Two Old Hippies Teams with Tom Bedell to Save the Tongass National Forest from Clearcutting
Located in Southeast Alaska, the Tongass is the only National Forest in the United States in which clearcutting old-growth trees is still permitted. Old-growth Sitka spruce is a choice tonewood for guitar soundboards. Almost every major acoustic guitar manufacturer in the U.S. obtains this prized wood from the Tongass.
We as musicians, manufacturers, and music lovers can take action NOW to protect this precious national treasure.
Leave a legacy of music.
Help end the production and purchase of acoustic guitars made from clearcut old-growth Sitka spruce.
