Texas A&M Forest Service

Texas, with more than 261,000 square miles of forests, woodlands, prairies, mountains and deserts, is a great and very blessed state. Texas A&M Forest Service takes seriously our mission of providing statewide leadership to assure the state's trees, forests and related natural resources are protected and sustained for the benefit of all.

Texas Forest Service was created in 1915 by the 34th Legislature as an integral part of The Texas A&M University System.  It is mandated by law to "assume direction of all forest interests and all matters pertaining to forestry within the jurisdiction of the state."

In 2012, the agency's name was changed to Texas A&M Forest Service. Texas A&M Forest Service employs more than 375 employees in offices across the state.
