Bass River State Forest- Atlantic White Cedar Restoration

Year Planted: 2003

Trees Planted: 7,900
Location: New Jersey

This project site was originally a mature stand of Atlantic White-cedar that burned in a 20,000 acre wildfire in April 1999. If active management and tree planting did not occur on this 7.3 acre site, it would have converted into hardwood and brush. Therefore, in 2003 the New Jersey Forest Service planted 7,900 Atlantic White-cedars with the help of volunteers and a contract planter. Additionally, a solar power electric fence was installed to protect the seedlings from deer. This site was used as a professional education tour site and the eastern timber rattlesnake will benefit from this planting.
