The purpose of NJUrbanForest.com is about raising awareness for the natural beauty that can be found right in your own backyard. Most people today are concerned with the Amazon and other far away wild lands being decimated but seem oddly unaware about the destruction of the forest in their own backyard. Tax ratables are king more than not it seems. Open space is the best ratable. NJ is the most populated state in the country and should preserve it’s remaining natural areas.
