• Since 1915, landowner assistance and emergency response have been the primary duties of Texas A&M Forest Service. Today, this commitment continues with offices and agency personnel  located throughout the state.  

    Through landowner assistance programs like the Forest Stewardship Program, TFS focuses on providing education and technical advice in areas such as timber management and harvesting, fire, insects and diseases and invasive species. 
    Through the Forest Stewardship Program, a forester will meet with you on your property to discuss your land objectives and how to meet those objectives by developing a management plan. By working with a TFS forester you can take pride in knowing that your land management plan addresses numerous resource elements including timber, water, wildlife, forest health and more. Successful implementation of the plan often results in being recognized as a Certified Forest Steward.

    TFS supports many consulting and certified foresters who can give you more specific management information and technical guidance. If you are a professional forester providing services to private landowners and wish to be added to the TFS maintained list please complete and submit an application.
