With benefits such as aesthetic appeal, health benefits, and temperature control, it is easy to see why Flower Mound loves its trees. Now, the Town is seeking residents’ help in recognizing some of its significant trees through the annual Tree Recognition Program. The program was designed to promote community pride in these wonderful natural resources, while raising awareness about proper tree maintenance and good tree health. Please help us honor our leafy residents by nominating a tree that meets one or more of the following criteria:
- Large: This is a combination of three factors; diameter of the trunk at 4.5 feet above ground level, the height of the tree and the average spread of the canopy.
- Historic: The tree is associated with a historic event where a notable activity occurred, has documented history in the community, or was considered a well-known landmark before the incorporation of the Town.
- Unique/Rare: The tree is a specimen not commonly found in the area.
All trees nominated for this recognition should be well maintained, in good health, and in an area accessible for review. For more information, or to download a nomination form please visit: www.flower-mound.com/treerecognition. The deadline for nominations is July 31.
