Post Oak Savannah

The Post Oak Savannah lies just to the west of the Pineywoods and mixes considerably with the Blackland Prairies area in the south. This area includes the entire Claypan land resource area of Texas, which is part of the Southern Coastal Plains. The Post Oak Savannah, a gently rolling, moderately dissected wooded plain, is the home biota of Texas A&M University. Upland soils are gray, slightly acid sandy loams, commonly shallow over gray, mottled or red, firm clayey subsoils. They are generally droughty and have claypans at varying depths, restricting moisture percolation. The bottomland soils are reddish brown to dark gray, slightly acid to calcareous, loamy to clayey alluvial.
