About this event

Yet another outstanding Tree Farm Day is planned for you all at the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. The Great Swamp (located in Basking Ridge in Somerset County and Harding Township in Morris County) has lots of habitat types our resource specialists can provide great information about and to help you understand how everything is interconnected. We will be able to see management of non-native plants, prescribed burn areas, management for game and non-game wildlife species, including some threatened and endangered species. We'll have a Tree Farm tour on a property adjacent to the National Wildlife Refuge and other limited-capacity tours with plenty of choices amongst many topics of interest.

We will have our traditional presentation of awards of the Ron Sheay Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year, and the George Pierson Forest Steward of the Year during the lunch break; Tree ID contest with prizes for the winner, a prize raffle, 50-50 raffle, and the silent auction. Come share with us in celebrating the Tree Farm Program in New Jersey and congratulating your peers for their outstanding achievements in forest resource management.

If you have an item to donate to our silent auction, please contact Dennis Galway and/or bring it with you. Plan to spend the entire day with your fellow tree farmers and forest conservationists having fun, learning new things about the forest and new ways to nurture it and meet new friends or rekindle relationships!

Registration and breakfast is from 8:30am-9:15am. Please try to be prompt!

Bring lawn chairs, camp chairs, or blankets for sitting. Tree Farm signs with arrows directing you to the site will be placed on roads as you near the location.

This is a rain-or-shine event. Requests for refunds must be received by Thursday May 25, 2023 in order to be honored.
