Mesquite Model Helps New Mexico Partners Treat Millions of Grassland Acres
For more than a decade, the Restore New Mexico partnership has worked to remove mesquite and improve grassland conditions in southeast New Mexico for Lesser Prairie-Chickens and other wildlife. This partnership — made up of state and federal agencies, local soil and water conservation districts, and nonprofits — works together to prioritize areas for aerial herbicide treatment and enroll landowners and lessees in multi-year agreements to treat the land they operate. The result is tens of thousands of acres of mesquite-invaded woodland being treated every year.
