Background: In June 2013, SCS and the USFS Tongass National Forest remeasured the plant response to canopy gap restoration treatments at the old Todd Cannery site in Peril Strait. These gaps were created in young growth forest stands in 1990 and have been consistently monitored over the past 23 years – the only canopy gaps on the northern Tongass that have been continuously monitored.
