February's Program:  Managing Wildlife (Deer!) for Forests”

Learn about managing deer to help our forests. What are negative effects of deer overpopulation in the forest (think ticks, not allowing the forest to regenerate, etc.). Chris Markham, President & Founder of NJ Deer Control LLC will talk about the problems landowners & foresters have with deer and what we can do about it.

New Jersey Deer Control®, LLC president and founder, Christopher J Markham, is a wildlife biologist from Rutgers University who started a landscaping business in northwest NJ in the late 90’s.  His landscape designs were being ravaged by deer damage and he experienced very minimal success with using over the counter repellents.  He decided to shift his focus and dedicate his time and energy in creating a superior deer repellent that would provide long term success.  After years of research, experiments and field testing, Chris patented a natural product that is extremely effective and has achieved amazing results.
