• Our forestry staff works with landowners to actively manage forests, trees and related natural resources thus ensuring that the state’s forest lands remain productive and healthy, not only for the environment, but for generations of Texans to come.

    Forestry programs address the improvement of trees through forest genetics; reforestation of the land; stewardship practices to ensure responsibly managed land for future generations; forestry practices in urban settings; forest pest and disease control; tree nursery operations; and, striving to maintain land and resource use at a sustainable level.

    Sustainable forestry allows for meeting the resource needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future.
