Our natural environment is negatively affected by population growth. In the past, some of the most prominent area trees were lost without a public knowledge of their significance or death.
These treasures were silent witnesses to our history, foundations of our communities and resources for those interested in the know-ledge of outstanding trees.

|Do You Know of a Possible Champion or Historic Tree? |
Call your Regional Forester for details. See the Contacts page or fill out the Nomination Form so a Texas Tree Trails volunteer can locate and measure your tree. Our trees are counting on you.
If your tree meets the requirements of a champion for its species it will be added to our regional
DFW Big Tree Registry or maybe even the state or national champ lists! There are many big trees yet uncounted!
| If you love trees as much as we do and want to get involved, please help us gather information on these treasures. You can sign up and become one of our volunteers.|
Significant trees are not renewable resources and should be preserved in perpetuity. Virtual Tours offer our trees to the world, encourage eco-tourism and leave a legacy for the future.
