The 2011 wildfire season has been simply devastating for Texas and the people who call this state home. Four of the largest wildfires in recorded Texas history have occurred this season, making it one of the worst fire seasons ever. The long recovery and reforestation process can seem arduous and overwhelming, but Texas A&M Forest Service can help.

The Bastrop County Complex Fire (September 2011) A 34,000-acre inferno deemed the most destructive wildfire in state history - ignited over Labor Day weekend, forcing thousands of evacuations, destroying more than 1,600 homes and killing two people.
The natural landscape also took a significant hit. More than 16,200 acres of pine and mixed-pine deciduous forests full of large, mature trees were charred during the fire.
There is much work to be done to restore the beauty of the natural landscape. Texas A&M Forest Service, along with partners of the Bastrop Recovery Project, is leading the effort in the recovery and restoration of natural resources damaged and lost due to the wildfire.
