Who: Organized by NJ Tree Farm Program
What (provided by NJ Tree Farm Program): There are lots of habitat types our resource specialists can provide great information about them and to help you understand how everything is interconnected. There have been several storms since 2012 as everyone knows including Hurricane Sandy and the folks at Stag Lake with the help of their foresters have done a lot of work since last we visited. We will be able to see management of multi-aged forests, non-native invasive plant management, management for game and non-game wildlife species, including some threatened and endangered species. We’ll have our usual concurrent sessions to give you choices and opportunity to attend sessions in both the morning and the afternoon. We will have a portable sawmill demonstration, horse logging demonstration, Tree ID walk, and we hope to have a forestry equipment demonstration. There will be members from the New Jersey Forest Service (NJFS) including the State Forester and representatives from the Natural Resource & Conservation Service (NRCS) to help answer any questions about farmland assessment, the new Stewardship Act, and cost-sharing.
Why: Come share with us in celebrating the forests and learning more about them, renewing relationships and making new ones, and congratulating your peers for their outstanding achievements in forest resource management.
