Tree Recognition Program

Flower Mound’s Tree Recognition Program is designed to raise awareness about the importance of trees in our community, promote proper tree care and good tree health, increase community involvement and pride in these wonderful natural resources, and recognize those who own and care for significant trees in Flower Mound.

In order to qualify for recognition, the tree must fall into one or more of the following categories.

  • Large: The tree should be large for its species (perhaps the largest of it’s kind in the neighborhood, Town, region, etc.). There are 3 components that make up the size of a tree. The 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, is located where a notable activity occurred, has documented history in the community (old photographs, etc.), or was considered a well-known landmark in the area prior to incorporation of the Town.
  • Unique/Rare: The tree is a nice specimen of a species that is unusual to this area.

To nominate a tree for consideration, fill out the Tree Recognition Program Nomination Form and return it to the Environmental Services Department. Nominations will be accepted from May through August.
