  • FAMOUS TREES OF TEXAS

    It’s been said that every tree tells a story. If Texas’ trees could speak, what stories they would tell—stories of love, honor, mystery, justice and injustice. Famous Trees of Texas, the state’s historic tree program, is an elite group of trees that have witnessed exciting events in Texas’ frontier history.
