  • State forests are taken care of with sound scientific forest management that protects and keeps in existence native flora and fauna. Healthy and productive state forests that exist today are the result of public and industrial forest stewardship following heavy logging, devastating wildfires and insect epidemics common at the turn of the 20th century. 

    The primary purpose of state forests and arboretums is to serve as educational resources for Texans and visitors.
