Welcome to Landscape and Horticultural Technology (LHT) – the original “green” department. In our department, green means more than just the color of plants – it signifies a commitment to conserving our natural resources through sustainable landscape design and management.
The Landscape and Horticultural Technology building, which opened in 2012, furthers this commitment and features a green roof, solar panels and rain water harvesting as well as high tech classrooms to enhance the learning experience. In addition to state-of-the-art facilities, the Landscape and Horticultural Technology Department is well known throughout New Jersey and the tri-state region for the strong relationships the faculty has within the professional horticulture community and for the exceptional quality of its graduates. LHT students have gone on to leadership roles in professional associations at the state, regional, and national level; they own some of the most prestigious companies in the region; and they serve as supervisors and managers in horticulture throughout New Jersey.
Landscape and Horticultural Technology offers three great Associate in Applied Science degree opportunities.
