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.
