Ego Site:

East Texas.  Such a programe for the south should have 3 to 4 pine species, and a half 
dozen hard wood.  Sales in Texas for hard wood usually say red oak, white oak and other. 
 Sales in Texas for pine usually don't differentiate by species.  This may change, but, 
for now that is it.

Why not genaric categories, with input for species?
