The article focuses on the Collaborative Forest Restoration Program, a cooperative forest restoration program in New Mexico. It is a new approach to building agreement among people and organizations that care about New Mexico's public forestland. It provides grants for projects that restore forests on public or tribal land and improve the use of small trees thinned from those lands. It aims to provide cost-share grants to stakeholders for forest restoration projects on public land to be designed through a collaborative process. The project includes a diversity of stakeholders in their design, implementation and specified objectives including wildfire threat reduction, ecosystem restoration, reestablishment of historic fire regimes, reforestation, preservation of old and large trees.
