This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in east Texas based on an inventory conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program at the Southern Research Station (SRS) in cooperation with 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). The estimates presented in this update are limited to east Texas, which is made up of units 1 and 2 with a total of 43 counties (fig. 1). Forest resource estimates are based on field data collected using the FIA annualized sample design and are updated yearly (Bechtold and Patterson 2005). The data used in this publication were accessed from the FIA Database on November 1, 2016.
