Abstract Texas forests are prized for their scenic beauty, supporting tourism and outdoor recreation and providing wildlife habitat throughout eastern Texas. Texas forests cover 63.3 million acres. Of this, 12.1 million acres are in East Texas where the climate supports commercial forest. Trees are harvested from these lands for a myriad of forest products. The majority of the forest land in East Texas, some 92%, is in non-industrial private ownership, while approximately 6% are in national forests, and 2% in other public ownership. Major forest types in East Texas include loblolly-shortleaf pine, longleaf-slash pine, mixed oak-pine, oak-hickory, and oak-gum-cypress (see pie chart). Forest land in Central/West Texas is almost all non-commercial and is 95% privately owned.. Only 2.5 million acres are classified as commercial, 5% of the total.
