East Texas, 2012—Forest Inventory and Analysis Factsheet


This science update summarizes the findings of the statewide annual inventory of the forest resource attributes in Texas conducted by the Southern Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program in cooperation with the Texas A&M Forest Service. The 254 counties of Texas are consolidated into seven FIA survey units—southeast (unit 1), northeast (unit 2), north central (unit 3), south (unit 4), west central (unit 5), northwest (unit 6), and west (unit 7). East Texas is made up of units 1 and 2 with a total of 43 counties, while central and west Texas consist of units 3 through 7 (fig. 1). This overview represents the 2003 to 2012 moving average for east Texas provided by the remeasurement of annual inventory plots.
