About Us

Mission Statement

The New Jersey Forestry Association is dedicated to the wise use and management of the State’s forest land resource in a manner which will provide many products and services for the benefits of all our citizens, now and for future generations. These include economic and environmental benefits such as wood products, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, watershed protection, air purification, soil stabilization, temperature amelioration, windbreaks, urban buffers and landscape beautification. We believe these values are most important to New Jersey in the face of its continued rapid growth and urbanization.

NJFA Objectives

NJFA was organized in 1975 and incorporated in 1983 to promote forestry and forest management on public and privately owned woodlands throughout New Jersey.


  1. To encourage scientific management and the perpetuation of woodlands for the continuous production of their many goods and services.
  2. To serve as a forum and to make recommendations for solving problems and improving forest management.
  3. To disseminate information on the establishment, growth, harvesting and marketing of forest crops produced on woodlands both large and small.
  4. To work toward an economic climate favorable to the preservation of woodlands and the protection of property and landowner’s rights.
