The chief conservation activities in New Hampshire are directed at forests and wildlife. Most of the conservation program is administered by the state departments of environmental services, and fish and game. Federal agencies that participate in conservation programs in the state include the Fish and Wildlife Service, the Forest Service, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

In 2008 New Hampshire had 20 hazardous waste sites on a national priority list for cleanup due to their severity or proximity to people. Between 1995 and 2000, the amount of toxic chemicals discharged into the environment increased by 2 percent.

Among New Hampshire’s most serious conservation problems is the overcutting of its forests. The destruction of forests eliminates an important source of state revenue, impairs the natural beauty of the landscape, destroys the habitat of many animals, and increases the possibility of erosion and flood damage. For these reasons the state aids in the preservation of forest areas by encouraging selective forest cutting through special tax provisions. "New Hampshire" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
