Is there anywhere in Texas that is green? We are originally from the northeast, not in Texas right now, but are down south, and are looking into another move.

Anyone have any recommendations for towns in Texas that are safe, have good schools (14 & 8 year old) and green. We would like a rural area. We have family in San Antonio, don't want to be to close to big cities.

Thanks

As you can see from this relief map, the farther east or the farther south you go in Texas, the greener it gets. It's also wetter, flatter and more humid in the green areas.

If you go to Houston or East Texas, those right now are your greenest areas. Matter of fact, they are the only green areas in Texas at the moment, since everything else is getting brown or black due to increasing fire dangers and lack of rain.

A quaint rural town in East Texas (very green) - Jefferson
Jefferson website
It is a beautiful town with lots of antique shopping and Victorian-era architecture. Plus, it is within easy driving distance to Caddo Lake State Park, Marshall (population approx. 25000), Longview (population approx. 75000), and Shreveport, LA (metro pop. approx. 375000)
EDIT: Don't know about the quality of the schools in the area...someone with more knowledge of the area will have to give you information on that.
