That might be a Yankee Candle.I smell money in it for someone.

From rather peripheral experience to a somewhat similar project, old dense pitch pine stands are pretty worthless as far as timber goes. They can be used for pulp or shavings for animal bedding, probably the latter, unless there's a paper mill closer than I think. I don't want to underestimate the ability of graft to appear in New Jersey contracts, but they're not plundering some commercially valuable resource here. They do make money off of pulp and thats most likely what they will sell it for
