Only the far east of Texas has substantial tree cover. If you get south of Houston, the tree cover quickly disappears. If you go north, the trees feel stunted. I'd say Austin and San Antonio both have more western ambiances than eastern. And they're central Texas.

Well some parts of central Texas are more forested than other parts of central Texas a good example would be Brady compared to college station. Some parts of central Texas are heavily forested. Look up east central Texas forest for more info.

Also the area south and southeast of Florence in central Texas looks like a jungle compared to west Texas.

One thing I always found interesting about east central Texas is that it has red clay dirt like the southeast but yet has no pine trees.

Does it? I just google mapped (street view) some of the highways southeast of Florence and the trees there felt stunted and human sized, like I expected.

Compared to western Texas is a vague term, but it definitely doesn't feel like a jungle but rather the transition to the great plains.

You expect me to take your word? I've driven through that area, and I don't remember any jungles or forests for that matter. Just shrubs and trees slightly bigger than the shrubs.

I've driven from El Paso to Beaumont on the 10 on a cross country trip.

When I lived in Houston, I went to Austin and San Antonio more than a few times. Not to mention Laredo and Brownsville/South Padre. All of those areas are as I describe.

Sorry to say but that's the fact.
