The Warren County Soil Conservation District is dedicated to the
conservation of our natural resources. It was established in 1952 as a special purpose subdivision of the New Jersey Department
of Agriculture. With the passage of the New Jersey Soil Erosion
and Sediment Control Act, Chapter 251, P.L. 1975, the District has been able to reduce the resource problems which
result from urban sprawl. As one of fifteen soil conservation districts in New Jersey, it is the responsibility of the Warren
County Soil Conservation District to review, certify, and enforce soil erosion and sediment control plans.
The Warren County Soil Conservation District began a forestry program in 1985. This program provides technical assistance
on a wide variety of forestry matters to private landowners throughout Warren County. The services available through this
program include: forest management plans, timber stand improvement, timber harvesting, and reforestation.
