WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has left in place a lower court ruling that prevents New Mexico from greenlighting tree clearing on federal land in the state in the name of fire prevention.The Supreme Court declined Monday to hear a dispute between New Mexico and the federal government.The issue dates back to 2001 when New Mexico passed a law saying the U.S. Forest Service had failed to reduce the threat of forest fires by not clearing undergrowth and removing trees on Forest Service land. The law then gave counties in the state permission to do the work.When Otero County moved to cut trees on land in the Lincoln National Forest without federal approval in 2011, the United States government sued.

- When Indigenous People Control Their Own Land, It Protects Us All From Carbon Emissions
By Ben Paynter - Tuesday Oct 3, 2017
A new center is using mapping and legal services to help establish that indigenous people are rightful owners of rainforests around the world, in turn protecting those forests so that they can keep sequestering greenhouse gases.
Tropical rainforests controlled by indigenous people currently store 25% of the world’s carbon emissions. At the same time, “controlled” is usually something of a misnomer. While indigenous communities claim ownership of up to 50% of the world’s land, they’ve only legally secured about 10% of it. Many aren’t able to prove–with evidence accepted by courts–that the areas they’ve occupied for generations are technically theirs, giving industries the ability to work out claims or annexations of ancestral territories for mining, hydropower plants, or palm oil plantations, all of which destroy the land.
- Finding a good tree care service
By Bay Area Consumers’ Checkbook - Friday Aug 4, 2017
Finding a good tree care serviceThey absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas.[...] they look good.To keep your trees healthy or to get rid of dying ones, you may want the benefit of professional advice, skill and labor.To help you find it, nonprofit consumer group Bay Area Consumers’ Checkbook and Checkbook.org has surveyed its members and Consumer Reports subscribers about their experiences with area tree care services.For the next month, Checkbook is offering free access to its ratings of tree care services to Chronicle readers: www.checkbook.org/chronicle/tree-care.Other reasons for tree work include eliminating the risk to your house, or to electrical or other utility wires from rubbing limbs or precarious overhanging limbs; letting light and breezes more readily reach your house, garden or lawn; and protecting foundations and drainage systems from invading roots.[...] sometimes it’s difficult to diagnose and treat trees.Checkbook’s evaluation of tree care services found big company-to-company differences in the quality of advice and work performed.[...] the news is not all good.Some companies received favorable ratings from only 60 percent or fewer of their surveyed customers.Common customer complaints included charging more than promised, producing bad results and even property damage caused by careless or untrained workers.Typically, you don’t have to be home when bidders are looking at the job — but do include a thorough description of the work in a written contract that specifies who cleans up afterward, hauls away debris and wood, and removes the stump.Check whether a company’s liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance are in effect.If you need expert advice and help caring for your trees, rather than simply removing goners, look for certification by the American Society of Consulting Arborists (www.asca-consultants.org) or the International Society of Arboriculture (www.isa-arbor.com).Bay Area Consumers’ Checkbook magazine and Checkbook.org is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help consumers get the best service and lowest prices.
