Nature in New Jersey
The state of New Jersey is located in the Northeast of the United States and belongs to the mid-Atlantic states of the United States. The territory of the state of New Jersey is 22,608 km 2 (47th place among the states of the USA).
In the north and northeast, New Jersey borders the state of New York, and immediately beyond the Hudson River separating them is the largest US city – New York. New Jersey borders Pennsylvania to the west and Delaware to the southwest. From the east, New Jersey is washed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
The main physiographic regions of the state of New Jersey are the Appalachian Ridge and Valley (“Ridges and Valleys”), the New York-New Jersey Highlands and the Piedmont Plateau, as well as the inner and outer coastal valleys, part of the Atlantic Lowland USA.
In northwest New Jersey, in the Appalachian Ranges and Valleys, the Kittatiny Mountain Range stretches. The mountains here are covered with deciduous forests (oak, hickory, maple, birch, walnut, ash), it is here that the highest point of the state is located – High Point (550 meters above sea level). Interestingly, the obelisk erected on High Point in honor of those who died in the First World War is visible from three states – New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
To the east are the New York-New Jersey and Piedmont Plateaus. It is a hilly area with numerous rock outcrops, streams and lakes. In the northeast of the state, along the Hudson River, the steep, almost sheer cliffs of the Pelisades, up to 160 meters high, rise for more than thirty kilometers. The northern and central regions of New Jersey are often referred to as the Skylands (“Sky Country”).
The southern regions of New Jersey are characterized by flat terrain with low hills. The interior coastal plain stretches along the Delaware River, with soils excellent for farming. It is thanks to these fertile lands that New Jersey is nicknamed the “Garden State”.
