Witness Trees
Have you ever looked at a giant of a tree, perhaps a big
oak, and wondered what historical events it experienced
during its lifetime? Some of these impressive trees are
called “witness trees” and they have a special place in
the history of Illinois. Surveyors in the early 1800s relied
on witness, or “bearing,” trees as landmarks for creating
the earliest state land surveys and plat maps. During this
webinar, we’ll share the history of Illinois’ witness trees
and provide tools for you to discover witness trees in
your own area!
