Forestry & SocietyForests of New Mexico & SW/Questions

  • Compare the forests of NM, AZ, and CO.

  • Discuss the impacts of elevation, aspect (N,S,E,W) and latitude on species composition.

  • Place in order of occurrence as you climb up the mountain, and give approximate elevation: aspen, Douglas-fir, juniper, oak, piñon, ponderosa pine, spruce, white fir, and mesquite.

  • What types of forest products are harvested in NM? Who owns the land?

  • Describe the piñon-juniper woodland; location, diversity, species, climate, soils.
