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.


Best Management Practices

New Mexico’s best management practices (BMPs) program is quasi-regulatory. The agency responsible for BMPs policy development is the New Mexico State Forestry Division.
