Global Releaf Search

Bass River State Forest #1

Year Planted: 1993
Trees Planted: 23,000
Location: New Jersey

Thirty-four acres on the Bass River State Forest, New Jersey, were reforested with 23,000 mixed oak and shortleaf pine in April of 1993. The site had been harvested in 1989 and was planted in the spring of 1991 with new seedlings. However, that year a late killing frost and then drought killed most of the seedlings so that only 14 percent of replanted trees survived. Through this planting by the New Jersey Bureau of Forest Management this damaged area will be restored.
