Presentation by Steve Houser – 2 HOURS AT

This two hour lecture will include a presentation about Indian Marker Trees and Recommended Species for North Central Texas. The following is a synopsis of each presentation.
Indian Marker Trees – American Indians used trees not only to mark a trail, but also to signal the presence of important features, some of which were critical for survival. Indian marker trees are living witnesses and a significant part of this nation’s cultural heritage. The Texas Historic Tree Coalition is working to find, research, verify, recognize and celebrate these priceless cultural treasures. The purpose of this presentation is to increase awareness and understanding of Indian marker trees and recognize their significance to America’s heritage and culture.
Recommended Species for North Central Texas – With an education about our region’s native and adapted trees, you can plant a tree with confidence that it will provide many years of enjoyment. The presentation covers the basic information required to select the ideal tree for your yard, based on your needs and preferences.
