This part of Texas has a forest of pine trees! Some areas have swamps. Many animals like to live in these woods.

The pine trees grow pinecones that have very small seeds on them. The seeds grow into new pine trees.

Woodpeckers live here. They peck holes into trees with their bills to make their nests.

The Indians that lived here long ago made clay pots, planted corn, and lived in cone shaped homes made of branches.
