Yes, lots of trees in the national forest around Cloudcroft in the south.IIRC it is called Lincoln National Forest.
An Indian reservation is also up there.
Which “Federal” lands do they really want to claim?
I remember the fire near Cloudcroft back in 2000. The Feds would not let the electric co-op clear some trees along the right of way. Such trees would come in contact with the transmission lines. FedGov gave as the reason the “spotted owl habitat”. Of course some trees eventually made contact with the lines, there was a fire. What was found in the aftermath? Well done baked spotted owl. Can’t say if it tasted like chicken.
There were a lot of wildfires in New Mexico that year due to FedGov’s Charlie Foxtrots.
