Earlier in January, 2021, we moved from our former office location in Far Hills to our current location in Gladstone. Long-time clients will remember that we were located in Gladstone for about ten years, prior to the move to Far Hills in 2004. We believe that our new location will be an improvement for our clients, given that our new location has ample parking in the rear of the building.
We are now located in one of the storefront spaces in the Conover Corners building at 210 Main Street, Gladstone, NJ 07934. That is on the corner of Main Street (Gladstone) and Mendham Road, directly across the street from the Gladstone branch of the Peapack-Gladstone Bank, and also across the street from The Stable.
We look forward to seeing many of our clients over the next few months! Thank you for the opportunity to be of service.

How do I drop off blank farmland assessment applications and filled out Activity Summary sheets? Put it in the inbox on our office door. Call us so we know it is there.
How will I get completed forms back, so I can sign and submit them to the correct agencies? Wait in your car, and we will bring the completed forms out to you so you can deliver or mail them on or before the end of August 3.
Farmland Assessment Filing Season: Deadline Aug. 1, 2020
Written by Steve Kallesser
We hope that you and your family are well, and that the “stay at home” period has enabled you to enjoy your beautiful woods. Although life has been different for most of us, the deadline for the filing of your farmland assessment applications has not changed. The deadline continues to be August 1, 2020. We are available to assist you with the completion of these applications.
Initially, we will be handling most applications by mail or through an arranged drop off/pick up at our office, in order to comply with current social distancing rules. A calendar of our proposed office hours is found by CLICKING HERE. Howoever, please visit our website before leaving to see our current stauts, and to see any changes to this arrangement as new information becomes available to us from the state and local health authorities. CLICK HERE for directions to our office.
We can begin completing your forms immediately, provided that you supply us with the following: • A completed Activity Summary Sheet (CLICK HERE) or provide similar information. This information is critical for us to work on your applications. • Copies of receipts/proof of farm income, and other supporting documentation for the past year’s activities. • Your blank tax forms, if you have them. We can produce these forms for most municipalities at our office, so there is no need to wait to receive them from the town. • If you are mailing your forms to us, please do so prior to July 15th.
You will need to file your completed tax forms and supporting documentation prior to August 1, 2020, with the NJ Forest Service and your municipal tax assessor, per our instructions. An August 1st postmark is not sufficient.
There is currently no excuse or extension process for late filing. Our goal is for everyone to have all tax forms completed and all required information submitted correctly.
The law requires steady progress toward implementing your Forest Management Plan, and our yearly verification. All trees to be cut should first be marked by us to ensure conformity. The NJ Forest Service and municipal tax assessors expect our regular involvement and woodland activity inspections. We are now required to report the date of our last visit to your property on your Woodland Data form.
The annual retainer and certification fee is $240. Any unpaid account balances must be settled before any forms are prepared. We accept credit cards and Paypal for your added convenience and payment is expected and appreciated at time of service.
Also please note that after July 28 there will be an additional $50 Premium Service Fee applied. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
