Two sites in the Belleplain State Forest of New Jersey were reforested by the New Jersey Bureau of Forest Management with 70,500 trees in the springs of 1992 and 1993. One site had been ravaged by gypsy moth and the other damaged by wildfires. Once this area recovers it will be used as a recreational area for bird watching, hiking, jogging and camping.
