Forest Resource Development and Sustainable Forestry: Economic Developmentupdated: December 2014

The economic development program provides factual information and in-depth analysis of the resources and economics of the Texas forest sector in support of forest-based economic development in Texas. We also work with state and local economic development professionals, forest products industries, and landowners on various economic development initiatives.

Texas Forest Sector Economic Impact Summary Tool is an interactive tool to summarize estimated economic impacts of the forest sector in East Texas. The tool allows users to show economic impacts of a selected set of counties. In addition to providing values for each of the selected counties, totals are given for the entire selection. To use the tool go to Texas Forest Sector Economic Impact.
