NM Forestry Division publishes a list of fire-resistant plants
What do the words “forest and watershed health” mean to you? Not long ago, the health of our forests and water was not a concern for most citizens. But, after several years of drought, highly visible insect and disease devastation and an overall increase in the knowledge of our natural resources, New Mexicans are concerned about our forests and watershed health. We, at New Mexico State Forestry are responsible for wildfire suppression on all non-federal, non-municipal, non-tribal and non-pueblo lands. We also provide technical advice on forest and resource management to private landowners, and may include a commercial timber harvest to enhance wildlife habitat, increase water yield, reduce the hazard of insect infestation, diseases or fire.
