The United States has a wealth of large forests, most of which are found to the West of the Mississippi River. The largest national forest is the Alaskan forest, Tongass. The monstrous and dense constellation of greenery covers almost 17 acres. It encompasses a vast majority of Southeast Alaska and the Alaskan Panhandle.

The forest is home to an insurmountable number of species of wildlife like orcas, beavers, wolves, and brown bears. Tongass National Forest is actually the location for some of the largest populations of bald eagles and brown bears on Earth. In the forest are the Tongass glaciers, which are actual remnants of the last ice age, and the rich, rushing Tongass waters are home to five different species of salmon as well as countless other kinds of aquatic life.
