The grant $ being given to state agencies and "non profits" is outrageous. The timber driven money grab is devastating. They are clearcutting critical core forests and watersheds in NJ under the guise of creating "healthy" "young" "successional" forests and habitat for a bird species whose range no longer includes NJ. It's all spin. Some of healthiest contiguous forests are being destroyed with no baseline surveys and no consideration for steep slopes, thin soils, wetlands, vernal pools and other severe constraints. No consideration is being given to rare/threatened/endangered interior forest species. Canopied forest areas that filter more than 2/3 of NJ's water supply are being irreparably degraded. This is a money grab and destruction of public lands should be criminal. Please stop this!
