Forest Action Plan

New Jersey’s cool, green, and growing forests

New Jersey’s Forest Action Plan specifies challenges and issues such as biodiversity, forest composition, forest health, development, and carbon sequestration in New Jersey’s urban, exurban, and rural forests. With a background on existing conditions we can make informed management decisions to enhance, maintain, and expand forest resources and the benefits they provide today and for future generations.


Best Management Practices

New Jersey’s best management practices (BMPs) program is quasi-regulatory. The agency responsible for BMPs policy development is the New Jersey Forest Service.
