At 54 years, Lebanon Station fire tower is one of New Jersey’s oldest. The NJFFS 80’ Aermotor tower with 7’x7’ metal cab replaced the old Four Mile tower overlooking the fire-prone “pinelands.” In recent years a CCC era pine plantation grew to 80’ tall, restricting the view. A timely timber harvest restored the vista and supplied lumber for a variety of state projects.
