NJ Forest Stewardship Task Force Report

Updated: Jun 20

February 2023 |

Co-chairs of the Forest Stewardship Task Force presented its recommendations to guide the protection and management of New Jersey’s public forestlands today to a joint meeting of the Senate Environment and Energy Committee and the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee.

NJ SEED: Just as water management is a vital interest, so too is the management and protection of NJ’s public forested lands. Forests impact soil and water quality in our ecosystems and therefore play a critical role in both our economy and quality of life. The recommendations of the Task Force should be carefully considered for their impact on both. The first recommendation is for NJDEP to conduct a statewide mapping process of public forests. That would be a logical place to begin.
