Texas Forest Service Annual Personnel Meeting
Houston County Courier - November 2007

Over 360 participants from all across Texas from as far away as El Paso attended the annual meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the Crockett Civic Center. 

It has been more than 12 years since a meeting was held in Crockett, but the favorable response by participants may lead to it becoming a more regular venue for the event. 
The annual meeting gives the TFS staff a time to reflect on the past year's accomplishments while also learning about new directives and visions for the upcoming year. 

The event is highlighted by a presentation by the State Forester, Jim Hull on the situation of the forest resource in Texas and activities taking place to care for the landowners, homeowners, and clients that help manage and care for the forests and natural resources in the state. 

The meeting also allows recognition of TFS employees with awards that have contributed to exceptional accomplishments in support of the agencies objectives. 
With the ever increasing complexity of the newer landowners that are now managing much of the natural landscape it is becoming much more important to find ways to educate them on issues related to their new responsibilities. 

These issues include wildfire, water conservation, forest protection, pest and disease control, water quality protection, forest enhancement for timber, wildlife and many other values that we get for forests.
