The Texas Historic Tree Coalition is a non-profit, local citizens’ group advocating the recognition and celebration of significant and historic trees. Our goal is to find, research and honor the stories these living legacies have told, and continue to tell, for generations.

We’re passionate about bringing the story of significant trees to the public. As a coalition of volunteers, we seek the best information available from historians, arborists, archaeologists, anthropologists, environmentalists, and other experts in relevant fields. We strive to be the go-to group for people who need resources and help in recognizing irreplaceable trees in their community. The Dallas Historic Tree Coalition has received the National Arbor Day Foundation Project Award and the Texas Urban Forestry Council Project Award.

To our knowledge, we are the only group in Texas working to identify, register, and publicly recognize historic trees. We need your help!
