Heights Champion Tree designation by Denise Martin at 
1421 Columbia in the historic Houston Heights

Denise says: there are three live oaks in our easement, that we believe were all planted at the same time. Our house was built by Felix Munzenmeyer starting in Sept of 1910. He was a carpenter and built the house himself with the help of his siblings and other workers. He built on this lot bc one of his daughters was married to PL Borgstrum and lived 2 houses S of ours on Columbia. He passed in 1924 and from that date thru 1970 the house was a duplex. We do not know when the trees were planted, but assume sometime between 1912-24.

Tree Registry  Harris County established the tree registry to encourage the preservation of exceptional trees. It records the largest trees in the county by native or naturalized species. The Harris County Big Tree Registry is published every 5 years and the 6th edition will be released in 2015.
