Forest insects, pathogens, and disease complexes play important roles in the ecology of New Mexican forests. The disturbances they create help to recycle nutrients and thin overly dense stands. However, there are occasions when endemic insect and pathogen populations switch to an epidemic phase that can threaten entire forested landscapes. The State’s Forest Health Program provides technical and monetary assistance to help mitigate the risks and impacts of forest pests. The New Mexico State Forestry, Forest Health Program Manager can be contacted at (505) 476-3351.
