Trail Marker Trees; Dennis Downes

Great Lakes Trail Marker Trees;

Trail Marker Trees were an ancient form of land and water navigational aids, as well as a marking system to denote areas of significant importance such as ceremonial sites. These trees were used by many, if not all, of the Native American tribes and later by fur traders and early pioneers. The Trail Marker Trees differed in their appearance and formation from tribe to tribe and from region to region. Examples of these trees have been found all across the United States and throughout Canada.

Researcher Dennis Downes was first introduced to the Trail Marker Trees as a young boy and was influenced by his own Native American relative; later being influenced by and following in the footsteps of Dr. Raymond Janssen. Mr. Downes has spent nearly thirty years of his adult life in the field locating, documenting, and educating others about these historical icons. Throughout his research, Downes has worked with numerous Native American tribes and historical experts, archeologists, arborists, and anthropologists across the country to bring further credence to this study.

Presented by Dennis Downes,
Founder and President, Great Lakes Trail Marker Tree Society.
