Assessing Forest Health in NJ

Flat Rock Brook kicked off its Guest Speaker Series with a presentation by Dr. Jay F. Kelly, Ph.D. titled “Assessing Forest Health in Central New Jersey: Effects of Deer and Invasive Plant Species”.  Dr. Kelly discussed ongoing work involving deer management at Flat Rock Brook and his work studying and monitoring the effects of deer overpopulation on forest health in New Jersey.  He spoke about the impact on local wildlife populations, including breeding bird populations.

The program offered an opportunity to better understand Flat Rock Brook’s decision to erect permanent deer fencing with a goal of improving forest health and regeneration. For those that were unable to attend, or would simply like to learn more, you can find a copy of the presentation here.
