ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS




682020_45051_0.pngClover Rod and Gun Club in Kingwood Township selected
New Jersey - Outstanding Tree Farm of the Year.

Clover Rod and Gun Club and Richard Urglavitch have been named the 2019 Ron Sheay New Jersey Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year by the New Jersey Tree Farm Committee.  This award is given for stewardship ethic and commitment to excellent forest resource management.  

According to the New Jersey Tree Farm Program, “this year’s field of applicants was extremely diverse and an outstanding testament to the splendid work being achieved by New Jersey Tree Farmers.” Members of the New Jersey Tree Farm Committee visited tree farms that submitted applications and found it was a, “very difficult decision by the Inspecting Committee.”

Clover Rod and Gun Club will receive a plaque and a check for $350.00 (note date, time and place of the event are on hold due to COVID-19 protocols.)

The New Jersey Tree Farm Program is part of the American Tree Farm System which was established in 1941 founded on the concept that,” that recognizing landowners who practiced good forest stewardship would encourage others to do the same.”

The Clover Rod & Gun Club was formed by a small group of now Charter Members in 1948. The purpose of this organization was to preserve the sport of hunting and fishing and to pass this heritage to their children, other sportsmen and future generations. The club owns and leases over 400 acres in Kingwood Township.
