Event Spotlight: Upcoming Programs

Backyard Forestry in 90 Minutes

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

Join us on Thursday, January 20th at 7pm for our next webinar, “Mosses – An Introduction” by John Hooven.
Imagine a world without oxygen, where nothing grows on the land and everything lives in the ocean. That world was ours 350 million years ago. Then, a new species, related to green algae, made its way onto the land. These were the mosses and they made living on the land possible. Join us for January’s BYF Online as we briefly explore the mysterious world of mosses. Learn the difference between true mosses, hornworts and liverworts. Discover the versatility of a truly remarkable, seemingly simple plantlike organism that, to this day, is a fundamental part of the creation of soil where nothing else will grow. Our speaker will be NJFA Board Member and recent SUNY College of Environmental Science Graduate John Hooven.

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.
