The New Jersey Forest Service will refund landowners up to 75% for the cost of a new or revised Forest Management Plan to help meet the criteria necessary to participate in the state’s Forest Stewardship Program.
Landowners with 5 or more acres that are planning to have a professional forester manage their woodlands are eligible to participate in the state’s Forest Stewardship Program and receive a partial refund for the cost of developing a forest management plan. Landowners whose woodlands are Farmland Assessed and wish to revise an existing forest management plan are eligible for a rebate as well. Funds are limited. Call your Regional Forester to learn more about the many benefits of the Forest Stewardship Program.
