Saltcedar in New Mexico

Since its introduction to New Mexico in the early twentieth century, saltcedar has become an invasive species that robs native plants and animals of habitat and resources and severely jeopardizes the health of New Mexico’s watersheds.

If it continues to spread, the impacts will be serious and far-reaching, especially with regards to watershed health, as saltcedar continues to rob citizens of water resources.

This website is a brief overview of our research proposal, which addresses the causes and impacts of the saltcedar invasion, and examines various solutions to manage and eventually eradicate saltcedar in New Mexico
