Texas A&M Forest Service

Texas A&M Forest Service conserves and protects the resources and lands of the Lone Star State.

Conserving Texas’ trees and forests, the state agency helps property owners maintain land and natural resources to ensure forest-lands remain productive and healthy not only for the environment, but for generations of Texans to come.

TFS is also one of the lead agencies for incident management in the state. From the initial response to ongoing recovery, the agency strives to protect Texas from wildfire and other types of disasters. TFS does this by not only fighting wildfire and responding to incidents, but also by building capacity and increasing public awareness about community protection and wildfire prevention.

In partnership with other agencies, local governments and fire departments, TFS provides programs to aid communities across the state, giving them tools and resources to actively protect themselves and their properties.
