The Texas Historic Tree Coalition will dedicate a 200-year-old Caddo Oak, the newest addition to THTC's historic register. The post oak was nominated by Friends of Southwest Nature Preserve, which supports the 58-acre city-owned park. The tree is part of a post oak/blackjack oak forest on Kennedale Mountain, which dominates the preserve.

There is a moderately-difficult hike to the tree that takes about 30 minutes. Attendees will want to arrive early enough to hike to the tree for the 10 a.m. ceremony. A shuttle will be available from the SWNP parking lot to the north gate, providing closer access to the ceremony site for those who want a shorter walk.  

Free and open to public.
