Hi Gail, Thanks for your questions.   The data for 2010 is in the final stages of processing.  Once this is complete, the data is then reviewed and posted to the web.  As the data for individual states has begun to roll in over the past few weeks, I would expect that the NJ 2010 data and report should be on-line within the next 3 to 4 months.  My apologies for the erroneous link to the Illinois 5-year report.  New Jersey's 5-year report is currently underway and I hope that it will be available within the next 6 months.  In the meantime, I would direct you to the last comprehensive analytical report for NJ called "Forests of the Garden State" - http://nrs.fs.fed.us/pubs/6933.  Hopefully, this report can provide further information that you find of interest.   In regards to the report on Ozone, I have been trying to track down more information on upcoming analyses.  At this time, data is available through 2009, but I am unaware of the timeline for future reporting.  However, I can only assume that this is also in the works.  In lieu of a report, you may find it interesting to look at the data itself.  Ozone data for NJ can be downloaded at the FIA DataMart - 
I recently met with Foresters and Forest Health Specialists in preparation for the 5-year report.  While a few damage causing agents are on the rise (including the native Southern Pine Beetle, gypsy moth and bacterial leaf scorch),  I am not aware of a large increase in the number of dying trees.  Perhaps what you are seeing can be attributed to localized increases in decline and mortality due to the increased activity of some of these pests.  For example, Southern pine beetle has been increasing, in terms of mortality, over the past 2 years in the southern portion of NJ. I would also like to direct you to the Statewide Assessment for NJ, which was completed in 2010 - http://www.stateforesters.org/files/NJ-Assess-Strategy-20100810.pdf.  This document has a lot of great information regarding forest conditions, pests and strategies for managing statewide resources. I hope this response provides some of the information that you were looking for.  Please feel free to contact me with any future or further questions. Cheers, Sue ***************************************************************
