Forest Action Plan
Promote healthy, sustainable forests for the benefit of current and future generations
The size and topography of the state make it one of the most biologically diverse in the nation. The working forests supply New Mexico’s citizens with wood products and critical ecosystem services including clean water, wildlife habitat, flood protection, and erosion control. Our Forest Action Plan intends to guide long-term management, but just as importantly, to provide useful information to our many partners who work together to create and maintain sustainable forests and their many benefits.

New Mexico’s best management practices (BMPs) program is regulatory. The agencies responsible for BMPs policy development are the New Mexico State Forestry Division, the Environment Department and others.
