Pecos receives Austin Oak Trees

Pecos is the proud recipient of two Stephen F. Austin Oak  Trees thanks to the Texas Forest Service, Texas A&M University, and  the Pecos Tree Board. These "Austin Oak Trees" were grown from  acorns from a Live Oak (Quercus virginiana) that is located on the site  where Stephen F. Austin died in Brazoria County.

The project was sponsored by the Sons of the Republic of Texas as a memorial to the "Father of Texas."

Texas A&M Research Station has planted one of the trees, and the other has been planted at the Lucius Bunton Federal Courthouse. After the planting sites have been certified by the Texas Forest Service, each location will receive a certificate of authenticity to go with he tree.
