Dominant woody species in the honey-mesquite-savannah-acacia shrubland were honey mesquite, granjeno (Celtis pallida), persimmon (Diospyros texana), hogplum (Colubrina texensis), brasil (Condalia hookeri), and whitebrush (Aloysia gratissima).
Upland habitats on the STX study site included mesquite Prosopis glandulosa, whitebrush Aloysia gratisima and mixed-brush shrublands.

Other communities, such as paloverde (Parkinsonia texana)- or ceniza (Leuco-phyllum frutescens)-dominated uplands or whitebrush (Aloysia gratissima)-dominated drainages, are locally significant.
Uplands were dominated by native Tamaulipan thorn scrub composed of honey mesquite, blackbrush acacia (Acacia rigidula), whitebrush (Aloysia gratissima), purple sage (Leucophyllum frutescens), creosotebush (Larrea tridentata), guajillo (Acacia berlandien), lotebush (Ziziphus obtusifolia), and Texas prickly pear (Opuntia engelmannii).
Subdominant woody species include twisted acacia (Acacia schaffneri), blackbrush (Acacia rigidula), brasil (Condalia hookeri), hog-plum (Colubrina texana) and whitebrush (Aloysia gratissima).
The herbaceous-dominated interspace between clusters of shrubs can produce low-intensity fires, while stands of volatile shrubs such as whitebrush (Aloysia gratissima) can produce high-intensity burns.
Whitebrush (Aloysia gratissima), catclaw mimosa (Mimosa aculeaticarpa var.
Other common subdominants, which can rise to codominant status, are prickly pear, colima (Zanthoxylum fagara), hogplum (Colubrina texensis), whitebrush (Aloysia lyciodies), blackbrush (Acacia rigidula), wolfberry (Lycium berlandieri), bluewood (Condalia obovata), Texas persimmon, Texas ebony, and lotebush (Ziziphus obtusifolia).
In this community, mesquite is the overstory dominant and granjeno and wolfberry dominate the lower shrub strata, with whitebrush and bluewood common associates.
