Forest Overview

Named for the legendary pioneer, this National Forest in eastern Texas is comprised of more than 160,000 acres of woodlands, streams, and recreation areas. It also provides habitat for a variety of wildlife including deer, quail, turkey, waterfowl, and the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker.

Davy Crockett National Forest Needs Our Help

Shortleaf pine stands have suffered a 53 percent decline in this range since 1980. And the struggling ecosystem took an additional hit when a tornado ripped through the forest on December 25, 2012. Region-wide efforts are underway to restore the area’s forestland — replanting shortleaf pines to provide critical future foraging and nesting needs for the red-cockaded woodpecker and better habitat for other area wildlife.
