FORROS Plants Trees in North Beach Bosque

Natural Resources Conservation Service provided 24 cottonwood, 10 New Mexico olive and 20 coyote willow poles and one black willow pole for planting in the newly-cleared North Beach bosque. Volunteers from FORROS planted the trees and wrapped the cottonwoods with chickenwire to protect them from the beavers. More trees will be planted when they become available.

Holes for the trees had to be deep enough to reach the water table. These were drilled using equipment and personnel from the City of Rio Rancho
