Forest Health in New Jersey
State Forestry Services surveys New Jersey's forests both from the ground and the air for various insects and diseases. While hundreds of insects and diseases damage our forests, foresters suppress only those that spread quickly and will not weaken on their own. Often the worst pests and diseases are non-native and introduced to our forests accidentally. Without their native predators, these pests will thrive and spread.
