Tien Phuoc is divided into three main geographical regions:

Hilly and Mountainous Region: This region covers 55% of the district’s natural area and is located in the western, southwestern, and northern parts of the district. The elevation ranges from 200 meters to 500 meters above sea level.

Hill and Plateau Region: This region occupies 25% of the total natural area and is situated adjacent to the hilly and mountainous area. It has elevations ranging from 100 meters to 180 meters and is often used for the cultivation of perennial crops like cinnamon and black pepper.

Terraced Lowland Region: This region accounts for 20% of the total natural area and is primarily found in the central and eastern parts of the district. It is used for the cultivation of flowers and rice.

Tien Phuoc is blessed with two major rivers, the Tranh River and the Tien River. The Tranh River is 23 kilometers long and flows through Tien Lanh commune. The water from this river is used for constructing large-scale hydroelectric projects. The Tien River, on the other hand, is 43 kilometers long and passes through various communes, including Tien Loc, Tien An, Tien Canh, Tien Ky, Tien Chau, and Tian Cam. This river plays a crucial role in providing irrigation water for crop cultivation, serving the agricultural sector.

The district’s total natural area is 45,322 hectares, comprising 7,515 hectares of agricultural land, 22,925 hectares of forested land (including 18,760 hectares of productive forests and 4,164 hectares of protective forests), 926 hectares of construction and residential land, and 10,230 hectares of unused land with the potential for agricultural and forestry development. Due to its unique topography and soil characteristics, Tien Phuoc has a high proportion of forested land, accounting for more than 50% of the natural area. Additionally, there is a significant amount of unused land designated for future development within the district.
