You Need to Provide Excellent Drainage
Alaska's panhandle is covered by the largest national forest in the country and the planet's largest rain temperate forest, the Tongass National Forest. Although rainfall amounts vary among different parts of the Tongass, water is a part of living in the rain forest. The inhabited communities of the Tongass are all located in coastal areas that experience high rainfall levels. For this reason, yard and garden areas can easily become flooded, creating optimal conditions for fungal pathogens to become problematic.
