Learn about the Changing Texas Landscape

The Upper Texas Gulf Coast is a diverse habitat area where the Piney Woods ecoregion of East Texas meets the Gulf Coast Plains. Central to this transition zone is the 8-county Houston-Galveston Metropolitan Region, where population is expected to increase by 3.7 million people by 2040. Development is extending into areas where the Gulf Coast Plains and the Piney Woods natural habitats still exist.

Understanding the natural Texas landscape of our region, and its economic and ecological roles, allows private landowners and developers to make informed decisions about development and land management, leading to maximum economic and ecological benefit from the land.
