Save A Rare 12-Acre Forest

Your tax-deductible contribution today will help caring community activists save this gem of a 12-acre New Jersey forest that has 800 trees which have not been touched in almost 100 years. It is the last piece of a fully-developed ridge 13 miles west of New York City.

It has thirty large oak trees eighty feet tall and a gigantic and rare elm tree.

We have an opportunity to preserve this forest from development and since we are all connected, a forest saved in New Jersey helps prevent climate change in California. We will accept donations from anywhere in the world. 

$500  and up contributions can have their name on a tree ID tag.
$1000 and up can have their name placed on a commemorative plaque at the entrance.

In fact, we need to preserve all trees on the planet now to protect us from climate change and flooding.

"The act of just seeing a forest conveys peace and security in our lives......imagine how it feels to  step forward and save one!"

Big trees are crucial habitat for birds and raptors such as owls, hawks, eagles and numerous animal species including the endangered Indiana bat.





This forest and all forests are living water towers.





This forest holds back millions of gallons of storm-water from the adjacent busy roadway where there have been many accidents. If the forest is removed there will be more flooding and accidents.

Your contribution will be used to acquire the forest and prevent it from being cut down.

We hope to apply to New Jersey Green Acres to match the funds in which case we may be able to get half our money back.

Note: If we do not make our goal, you can request that your contribution be returned less the processing fees incurred.

A peaceful meditation path can be made within it for visitors without cutting trees.



This is an important forest and with your help can be preserved as a protected space for people to enjoy forever.

Thank you for your contribution.
