Who We Are

100 years have passed since a handful of conservationists, motivated by a deep concern for Texas’ forest resources, formed Texas Forestry Association. As the years passed, they were joined by others, forming a continuous bond of dedication, service and support to the forest lands of Texas.

Today, the Texas Forestry Association, still guided by a conservation philosophy, has become more than just an association of forest-minded landowners, businesses and professionals. It has reached far beyond the original concept of TFA in 1914, and today offers programs for almost every Texan interested in conservation, business, history, education, wildlife and more.

Our Mission Is…

  • To promote an economic, social, and political climate that will advance forestry in Texas;
  • Through education, political action, and public relations, promote the understanding and acceptance of forest conservation practices throughout the state;
  • To serve the broad needs of the forest resource of landowners, producers, and consumers; and
  • To enhance and perpetuate the Texas forest resource.
