About NJ Urban Forest
Welcome to the NJ Urban Forest Blog!
The purpose of NJ Urban Forest is about raising awareness for the natural beauty that can be found right in your own backyard. Most people today are concerned with the Amazon and other far away wild lands being decimated but seem oddly unaware about the destruction of the forest in their own backyard. Tax Ratables are often king more than not it seems. Open space is the best ratable. NJ is the most populated state in the country and should preserve it’s remaining natural areas.
Thirsty to learn more about the high diversity of plant life found in the Garden State? It is strongly recommended you check out this wonderful informative book: Plant Communities of New Jersey. NJ’s geology, topography and soil, climate, plant-plant and plant-animal relationships, and the human impact on the environment are all discussed in great detail. Twelve plant habitats are described and the authors were good enough to put in examples of where to visit!
