New Mexico Tree Species Information

Trees represent an extremely important part in preserving and enhancing our environment. Not only do they assist in reducing carbon produced by our automobiles and industries, they also improve our quality of life. Trees provide shade in our parks and homes, reduce and clean storm water run-off, stablize soil, reduce dust in the air, reduce ground temperatures, reduce energy costs, and increase property values.

 has four has four different seed pods each year. No cotton at all. What is it?

I need more information to help you identify this tree. Leaf shape would be a good start; and a photo or drawing of the flower structure.

Can river birch (betula negra) grow in Albuquerque’s South Valley?

I would look online for information on the range of river birch, but I suspect the answer is no, or at best it would do poorly. Our altitude and weather extremes are quite different from typical river birch habitat.
