Detailed Site Description: 

Héen Latinee Experimental Forest was established on June 25, 2009, as a site for coastal temperate rainforest research. The 25,595-acre forest is located 37 miles north of Juneau, Alaska, inside Alaska’s Tongass National Forest, part of the largest temperate rain forest in the world. Héen Latinee reaches from ridge to reef, from glacier to estuary, over a short distance, allowing for studies crossing many different landscape types. This unique environmental cross section spans the elevational range, from temperate rain forests on the shores of Lynn Canal to alpine tundra bordering the Juneau Icefield.
