THAT'S WHY BMPs ARE SO IMPORTANT

Nearly 80% of all freshwater resources originate on forested lands. Texas has 48,000,000 acres of forestland of which 11.9 million acres are located in East Texas and considered commercial timberland. The forestry community has an important role in protecting the quality of these waters.

It is documented that well managed forests provide us with clean water. They absorb rainfall, refill aquifers, slow and filter storm water runoff, and reduce floods.  They also provide important habitat for fish and wildlife.

Fresh water is and will remain a very important issue, especially in Texas.  As our populations grow, the demand for fresh water for drinking, recreation and other high quality uses will continue to rise.
