Lecture: Comanche Marker Trees of Texas at

Discover how American Indians used trees as an early road map at this free lecture by Steve Houser.

Like an early road map, American Indians used trees to mark significant natural features such as trails, low water crossings, or camp grounds. Today, these old road signs are known as Indian Marker Trees. These Indian Marker Trees are the living witnesses to the history of a past civilization and their incredible way of life.

Speaker Steve Houser is an arborist, founding member of the Texas Historic Tree Coalition, and co-author of the 2016 book Comanche Marker Trees of Texas. He will share some history about Indian Marker Trees as well as recent discoveries of Indian Marker Trees in North Texas.
