New Mexico State Forestry is implementing landscape restoration and resiliency work on 1,344 acres of heavily wooded forestland in high priority watersheds in the Sacramento Mountains. “Our goal for this crucial watershed project is to reduce tree density and lower the threat of catastrophic wildfire. This project also supports water quality objectives and promotes the growth of native vegetation while creating a forest ecosystem more resilient to fire,” said Capitan District Forester Lynn Lovelace.

Using state funding, this collaborative project will treat landscapes on federal lands to protect the watersheds, the surrounding communities and their water supply.  Read the full release here.
