New Mexico Art Tells its History

Deforestation

One fourth of the state of New Mexico is covered by forested land. The state has seven National Forests including the Nation's largest, the 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest. Deforestation in the state usually occurs through natural fires, and is not brought on by development or other needs of man.
