The Charming Town of Bastrop, Texas
Why is Bastrop called Lost Pines?
The Lost Pines region of Texas is named for the fact that it is the southernmost stand of loblolly pines in the United States. These pines are a subspecies of the Eastern pine, which is native to the eastern seaboard. The Lost Pines forest extends for about 140 miles, from Bastrop County to Orange County. Within this forest are two state parks, Buescher and Bastrop, which contain some of the largest and oldest trees in the region. The oldest tree in the Lost Pines forest is over 500 years old! The Lost Pines are called lost because they are geographically isolated from other stands of Eastern pines.
