We Bet You Didn’t Know That New Jersey Was Home To One Of The Only Pygmy Forests In North America

The New Jersey Pinelands is one of the most fascinating places on earth. Packed with folklore about demons and ghosts, as well as glass-making ghost towns and lots of historic villages and buildings still standing, there’s almost no better place to explore if you want to see a unique side of the Garden State. The Pines take up nearly a quarter of all of New Jersey’s land, and there are endless treasures to discover. One of the most unique is the Pygmy Pitch Pine forest in Warren Grove. It’s one of the only dwarf forests in the country.

Most dwarf or pygmy forests in the world are located in tropical and coastal areas. They’re found in Oregon and parts of California, as well as in various rainforests. The Warren Grove Pygmy Pines may be the only pine tree dwarf forest you’ll ever get to see.
