Welcome to your resource for tree identification and dendrology in east Texas, and thank you for visiting the Dendro @ SFA website.  I hope that the information available on this site is helpful to you.

While dendrology is technically the study of trees, this site takes a broader approach and focuses on woody species.  This is why vines and shrubs are included in addition to trees.  This website was originally created on August 17, 2010, with the goal of improving learning related to dendrology for students in FOR 219: Dendrology at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. It underwent substantial revisions to the content management system and template in summer 2014 to improve usability on smartphones and tablets.  The content of this site has been developed by myself and many dendrology students who have generously given of their efforts and ideas. While the primary audience for this page is thus dendrology students, over the coming years my hope is to increase the amount of freely available and useful content relevant to a wider audience interested in trees, woody plants, and their identification.
