Description

NJ Tree Farm Day is being hosted at the Tree Farm property of Stag Lake Corporation in Sussex County, NJ.

Yet another outstanding day is planned for you all at the Stag Lake Tree Farm in Andover and Byram townships in Sussex County. Yes, we were there in 2012 and we are returning as this 1,200 acre multi-generational family tree farm is wonderfully diverse in its habitat. There are lots of habitat types our resource specialists can provide great information about them and to help you understand how everything is interconnected. There have been several storms since 2012 as everyone knows including Hurricane Sandy and the folks at Stag Lake with the help of their foresters have done a lot of work since last we visited. We will be able to see management of multi-aged forests, non-native invasive plant management, management for game and non-game wildlife species, including some threatened and endangered species. We’ll have our usual concurrent sessions to give you choices and opportunity to attend sessions in both the morning and the afternoon. We will have a portable sawmill demonstration, horse logging demonstration, Tree ID walk, and we hope to have a forestry equipment demonstration. There will be staff from the New Jersey Forest Service (NJFS) including the State Forester and representatives from the Natural Resource & Conservation Service (NRCS) to help answer any questions about farmland assessment, the new Stewardship Act, and cost-sharing.

We will have our traditional presentation of awards to the Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year (OTFY) and the George Pierson Forest Steward of the Year (GPFSOTY) during the lunch break; Tree ID contest with prizes for the winner, a raffle of a great Stihl product, and the “silent auction”. I will let you in on a secret that Stag Lake our host this year is also our 2017 OTFY award recipient. So come on out and help us congratulate them, their foresters, and the GPFSOTY award recipient and celebrate 72 years of tree farming in New Jersey at a great location. Come share with us in celebrating the forests, renewing relationships and making new ones 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. We encourage you to mark Friday June 1st, 2018 on your calendar and come out and see some more truly outstanding forest resource management and at the same time support your NJ Tree Farm Program. Plan to spend the entire day with your fellow tree farmers and forest conservationists having fun and learning new things about the forest and new ways to manage it!
