Washington, D.C. – American Forests is asking the public to go online and nominate their favorite trees for a place on America’s Historic Tree Register. This newly created register will showcase historically and culturally significant trees, in addition to spotlighting trees that have played notable roles in an individual’s life, such as one planted by an ancestor or those climbed as a child.

Trees can be nominated on the group's website and can be entered into one of five categories:

Historic trees – trees associated with a historic or cultural event.

Famous people  trees associated with historical, cultural, literary, or artistic figures.

Places – trees associated with historic locations and famous attractions.

Age – trees that are remarkably old.
