Sourland Conservancy Wants To Plant Trees On Your Property

Skillman, NJ (May 15, 2024) – Would you like to attract more butterflies and birds to your backyard? Have you been thinking about planting more native trees and shrubs? Have you lost a favorite tree due to insects or storms? Is your property (of any size) located within the Sourland Mountain Region of Central New Jersey? The Sourland Conservancy may be able to help!

In 2022, the Sourland Conservancy was awarded a generous US Forest Service (USFS) grant to plant native trees and shrubs directly on private land within the Forest Service Priority Area within the Sourland Region. This work helps provide critical habitat and strengthen connectivity to help keep wildlife populations healthy.

The Sourland Conservancy is looking for 25 more Sourland Region residents who would like to have our staff plant native trees and shrubs on their property. All trees and shrubs will be protected with white plastic tree tubes. Residents must agree to maintain the trees and remove the tubes once the trees outgrow them.

If you are interested, please email your address to Sourland Conservancy's Stewardship Director, Rob Aluck, at to see if your property is located within the USFS Priority Area. Please use the subject line: USFS planting inquiry.
