Welcome to the “Backyard Forestry - North” Stewardship Series! The New Jersey Forestry Association is pleased to partner with Frelinghuysen Arboretum to provide this series of monthly 90-minute programs that will provide landowners with informative, educational and interesting topics on how they can steward their backyard woodlot.

January 16, 2020 Program:  “Prescribed Burning 101”

Fire is an ecosystem process that is important to North Jersey.  If you are a landowner, non-government organization, or have land holdings, attend this program to hear forward-thinking ideas on managing your woodland’s habitat.  Pennsylvania has an ambitious goal of burning tens of thousands of acres annually for habitat improvement and wildfire prevention.  Learn how effective their program has been and how we can benefit from their experiences.  Join us as we welcome Patrick McElhenny from the Nature Conservancy and John Wakefield from the PA Game Commission at Backyard Forestry North.
