New Jersey <<return to state

The entire state of New Jersey is within the Mid-Atlantic Framework. New Jersey is composed of three Ecological Provinces, the Eastern Broadleaf Forest (221), Outer Coastal Plain Mixed Forest (232), and the Central Appalachian Broadleaf Forest (M221). Understanding and managing the impacts of climate change on the Mid-Atlantic’s diverse forests will help us maintain their many benefits for years to come.

A key step to understanding the potential impacts of climate change in the Mid-Atlantic region is conducting a vulnerability assessment. The Mid-Atlantic Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment is currently in development. For more information, contact Patricia Butler.

Use the menu above to explore Partnerships, Vulnerability Assessments, Forest Adaptation Resources, and Demonstration Projects in Delaware or return to the Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Response Framework.

Please contact Patricia Butler to learn more about this effort.
