“Trees for New Jersey Streets”
The NJ Shade Tree Federation's publication, Trees for New Jersey Streets is the sole reference for reforestation tree selection on county or municipal street right-of-ways when a state entity is required to submit a Reforestation Plan under the No Net Loss Act. If you are working with a state agency whose actions will result in the deforestation of land one half acre in size or greater and the land is owned or maintained by that State entity or another State entity, make sure they have a copy of Trees for New Jersey Streets. Deforestation can result when a state entity undertakes a project, such as widening a road or building a new facility. If this is happening in your town, purchase a copy of Trees for New Jersey Streets and be sure the state agency has purchased a copy as well! It's in the law!
