Cutting down healthy trees doesn't create healthy forests. This is what the NJ DEP plans to do in our northern NJ forests and throughout the state. Join Author and Forest Ecologist, Dr. Joan Maloof, Director of the Old Growth Forest Network on Thursday May 9th, at 6:15 pm when she discusses her research on the importance of our Old Growth Forests. Learn about the value of maturing & existing Old Growth Forests for carbon sequestration, species diversity and soil microbial health.
Also, learn how forests contains species that are unaccounted for by the "naked eye" and how these mycorrhizal communities are so important to the forest ecosystem.
