Pineywoods

The Pineywoods area lies entirely within the Gulf Coastal Plains, which extend into Texas for 75 to 125 miles west of the Louisiana border. The area is a nearly level to gently undulating, locally hilly, forested plain. Upland soils are generally acid, sandy loams and sands over gray, yellow, red, or mottled sandy loam to clay subsoils. Bottomland soils are generally light brown to dark gray, acid to calcareous, loamy to clayey alluvial. Acid loamy soils are extensive in the flood plains of minor streams. The dominant vegetation type is a mixed pine-hardwood forest on the uplands and a mixed hardwood forest on the lowlands.
