The NJFA will host the next virtual member-only meeting on Thursday, December 3 at 7:00 pm. Join us for

Manage Your Dying Ash Now: A Tool Kit for Woodland Owners”

As the Emerald Ash Borer infests the forests of NJ and kills your ash trees, you need to prepare and implement a response plan.

In this hands-on presentation, NJFA Director and Woodland Owner and Manager Richard Kelsky and NJ Approved Forester and Woodland Manager Andrew Bennett will help you deal with perhaps the largest woodland problem of your lifetime: the death of virtually all ash trees due to the Emerald Ash Borer.

The presenters will deliver a practical approach to addressing the rapidly dying ash on your private woodlands.  This not-to-miss presentation will help you develop a real-world action plan for your property.

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.
