Say What? Texas Forest Service is Now A&M?

It’s true, and it’s not another Aggie joke.  As of Saturday, September 1st, the 97 year old Texas Forest Service has a new name.  It is now the Texas A&M Forest Service.

The state agency created to conserve and protect the state’s trees, forests and related natural resources now operates under the umbrella of the Texas A&M University System.

TAMUS is one of the largest systems of higher education in the country, with 11 universities, seven state agencies and a comprehensive health science center.

The name change — which will cover all the state agencies — was proposed by Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp as a way to better align marketing and branding efforts.

Texas A&M Forest Service Director Tom Boggus says he and all TAMFS employees support this name change, but “we want to stress that changing our name will not affect how we do business.”  They will continue doing what they’ve always done, but they’re all Aggies now.
