Bye Bye New Jersey Pines


The New Jersey Pinelands are a really neat ecosystem, the rare fire-driven ecosystem in the east. I enjoyed hiking there when I was in the area in September. Like everything else though, it is changing rapidly thanks to climate change. The lack of cold winters means that beetles are moving north since the old deep freezes that used to kill them off in northern climes don’t happen anymore. This means widespread death for the pines.
