Description:
This waymark category is for individual, historic trees. An historic tree is one that was witness to an historic event, or maybe it was planted by, or otherwise directly associated with a famous historic figure. It will usually be marked by some form of plaque, noting its significance. The fact that a tree has a plaque however does not necessarily make it eligible for this category. Trees planted in honor of an historic figure, event or as a memorial will not be considered for this category.
