About Texas Historic Tree Coalition

Our Vision

Advocates for irreplaceable trees in Texas.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to researching, recognizing, and celebrating historic trees in Texas.

Our Values

The Texas Historic Tree Coalition is passionate about bringing the story of significant trees to the public.  We are a coalition of volunteers who 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 historic trees in their communities.

Established in 1995 as the Dallas Historic Tree Coalition, our work took us to places all over Texas and points beyond. In 2014, we grew to become the Texas Historic Tree Coalition.  We are an all-volunteer, non-profit group. We feel that we have a moral obligation to find, celebrate and document these living legacies for future generations to enjoy.

We promote wise and responsible stewardship of trees and view them as natural assets that must be carefully managed.  If you agree that historic trees should be recognized and protected, become a member at no cost and receive email updates.
