Editor’s Note: This edition of Inside the Pinelands was published before Governor Christie took action on the Healthy Forests Act. On August 19th, Gov. Christie conditionally vetoed this legislation removing all information about the purpose of the legislation and the provision requiring Forest Stewardship Council certification of forest stewardship plans. As a result the Pinelands Preservation Alliance withdrew its support of the bill.
