Thank you for your interest in Indian marker trees and for taking the time to contact us about a potential Indian marker tree. We will need several photos along with the requested information below to help us determine the potential significance of the tree(s) you are submitting.

  • Please fill out the following form found on this page. The more information you are able to provide, the better the tree’s chance is for consideration. Supportive evidence of claims to pre-settler American Indian history must be established through credible sources.
  • Email pictures of the tree (at least one picture should have a person standing next to the tree for perspective) to Steve Houser at steve.houser@txhtc.org and copy RuthAnn Jackson at ruthann.jackson@txhtc.org. If the photos are large, it may take several emails to send them all. Our computers will not accept over 18 megabits of information in each email. Thank you!
  • OR you may also download the Indian Marker Tree Nomination Form and How to Identify to your computer and save it. Afterward, fill out the form on your computer and forward it via email to Steve Houser, Trustee and Chairperson for the Indian Marker Tree Project at steve.houser@txhtc.org and copy RuthAnn Jackson, Trustee and Project Coordinator for the Indian Marker Tree Project at ruthann.jackson@txhtc.org (or print a copy and send by postal mail) along with photos of the tree.
  • If the tree is not on your property, please obtain permission from the owner to nominate the tree and provide the property owner’s contact information. We cannot pursue recognition of a potential Indian marker tree without the permission of the owner to research and inspect the tree.
