Native Vegetation (Flora & Fauna)

Native plants, trees and shrubs help conserve and filter water, provide habitat for native wildlife, protect soil resources, and reduce the costs and environmental impacts associated with fertilizers and pesticides.  Native vegetation is needed to support the ecosystem and helps keep invasives at bay.  Replacing or adding native vegetation whenever possible is something Environmental Commissions can be advocating for in their communities.  The Native Plant Society of NJ  and Jersey Friendly Yards have many resources available about native plants.   A brochure about Native Plants can be found here
