The Southwest Fort Worth Area is bounded roughly by Camp Bowie Blvd to the north, the City limits to the south and west, and Hulen Street to the east. Shallow clay soils covering dense plates of calcareous limestone mixed with areas of dense black clay dominate this area. Hackberry, cedar elm, Texas red oak, live oak and pioneer/fencerow species (bois d’arc, honey locust, and mesquite) are common.
The Clear Fork of the Trinity River and Mary’s Creek flow through the southwest region. Riparian areas feature mature bur oak, pecan, American elm,
cottonwood and American sycamore. Common urban tree plantings include live oak, cedar elm, Chinese pistache, and crape myrtle.
