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 services and products for the benefits of all our citizens, now and for future generations. These include environmental and economic benefits such as air purification, watershed protection, wildlife habitats, recreational opportunities, soil stabilization, temperature amelioration, windbreaks, urban buffers, forest products and landscape beautification. We believe these values are most important to New Jersey in the face of its continued rapid growth and urbanization.
NJFA was organized in 1975 and incorporated in 1983 to promote forestry and forest management on public and privately owned woodlands throughout New Jersey.
