GREEN BRANCH. Green Branch rises ten miles southeast of Fowlerton in east central La Salle County (at 28°20' N, 98°55' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, twenty miles southwest of Tilden in southwestern McMullen County (at 28°12' N, 98°42' W). The creek rises in low-rolling terrain and descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. The area soils are clay and sandy loams and support grasses, mesquite, and chaparral in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower.
