Backyard Forestry in 90 Minutes

Third Thursday of each month, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  

March’s Backyard Forestry in 90 Minutes Program:
“Developing a Forest Management Plan”
with Seth Partridge, Consulting Forester, Northeastern Forestry Products, Inc.
Join us on Thursday, March 18th at 7pm when Seth will discuss considerations and decision-making processes involved in developing a forest management plan. This will include integrating objectives for timber, wildlife, recreation, and endangered species. Contents of a management plan will also be discussed. We will consider why to hire a professional forester and the tools foresters use to develop the plan (soil survey, plot sampling, aerial photos, etc). With this consideration, we will discuss how to connect with natural resource professionals to help those wishing to define their own management priorities.

“Backyard Forestry in 90 Minutes” is a free educational program series sponsored by NJ Forestry Association, State Forestry Services & Rutgers Cooperative Extension. The program, now online, takes place on the THIRD Thursday of every month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

New Jersey Forestry Association, Inc.

A non-profit tax exempt organization under IRS 501 (c) 3

The New Jersey Forestry Association was founded in 1975 and incorporated in 1983 to promote forestry and forest management on public and privately owned woodlands throughout New Jersey. There is a need for an organization which can act as a spokesperson and advocate for woodland owners, conservationists and others interested in maintaining our forests. We welcome all people who share these values and concerns to join our Association and participate in our varied activities and programs.


The Association publishes the “New Jersey Woodlands” newsletter quarterly with frequent electronic communication, conducts an annual business meeting and program, sponsors or co-sponsors a number of forestry field trips, seminars, workshops and tree planting projects during the year, is a co-sponsor of The New Jersey Tree Farm Program, and works jointly with public and private conservation groups.
