New Jersey’s Pine Barrens is a wonderous place. A unique area that is not all pine, nor is it barren. It was given its name by early settlers who thought it barren because none of the “normal” vegetation they were used to grew there.

Most forests go through at least 3 stages. Brush, softwood, hardwood. The Pinelands has never gotten past the softwood stage. This site will discuss how the Pine Barrens evolved, and how it came to support an industry that helped build a nation.
