    Bass River Fire Tower proposal

    Based on this article, it appears the two agencies are the DEP and the Pinelands Commission. http://www.burlingtoncountytimes.com/news/20180814/dep-considering-suit-against-pinelands-commission-for-failing-to-approve-tree-clearing-application

    Bass River Fire Tower proposal

    The Pinelands Commission voted down the tree cutting proposal. In doing so it looks like they put themselves in uncharted territory in terms of what's to come next: http://www.burlingtoncountytimes.com/news/20180812/nj-pinelands-commission-votes-down-clearing-trees-from-around-bass-river-fire-tower

    Closing West Mill Road

    Kerry Pflugh is the new municipal liaison, it's worth including her in the communications. I give her some credit, since she took over the role, she has started sending weekly updates on "what's happening" at the DEP. She also went out to every municipality and met with the local officials to...

    Closing West Mill Road

    We took a ride down West Mill Road (Sycamore) on Sunday, but didn't get very far. A new gate has been installed here: http://maps.njpinebarrens.com/#lat=39.69788903846056&lng=-74.74525976579667&z=17&type=hybrid&gpx=

    Pinelands Commission Resolution: MAP 2.0

    The editorial board drank the kool-aid, and the PPA wants everyone to think the forest is closed now thanks to their fine work. No longer any need to compromise, and certainly no need to recognize all the progress made over the past two years when they were forced to compromise with the...

    Possible Government Shut-down may affect your weekend..

    They do vote on the budget, once it's approved they send it to the governor. If Prieto was confident his party would vote the way he wanted them to, he would have put both the budget and the Horizon bill up for a vote. If both were voted down we'd be in the same spot, but at least the full...

    Possible Government Shut-down may affect your weekend..

    They could have voted down the budget also. He didn't allow the vote because his own party would have approved it. As it stands they had no say in the matter.

    If Prieto's Democrats feel that way, why not let them vote it down?

    Possible Government Shut-down may affect your weekend..

    Although the Governor certainly shares responsibility for the shutdown, in fairness this situation was caused by Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D, Hudson). He refused to put the Horizon bill up for a vote, thereby denying the assembly of the opportunity to vote on it, one way or the other...

    Closing West Mill Road

    The State of NJ interactive tax map lists the "unnamed public road" as Sycamore Road, and it shows the current access to Paradise Lakes (not on Hammonton tax map), as "W Mills Rd". Does that mean that the main access road to Paradise Lakes is a state road through Wharton? I wonder where the...

    Closing West Mill Road

    The resolution specifically states Paradise Drive, it does not grant exclusive use of the unnamed public road from Rt. 206 to Paradise Drive. Based on that, it would appear that the gate should not be installed at Route 206, since that is not Paradise Drive according to the Hammonton tax map...

    What happened to this tree?

    Yes that looks very similar! Since the damage appears to be very recent, I'll be sure to take a look tomorrow to see if there are any Sapsuckers feeding on the tree. Thanks for the reply!

    What happened to this tree?

    Hi All, As I was walking out to the wood pile tonight with my headlamp on, I noticed that this pine tree looks to be in serious trouble. I've attached a few pictures, does anyone have an idea what's happening here? I've never seen anything quite like this. I'm hoping it can be saved, but it...
