Million Dollar Monarch


It’s not easy for us who live in heavily landscaped urban areas to remember a time when magnificent trees on the rolling North Texas prairie were the source of stories and legends. Through present-day footage and the use of historical photographs, moving images and sound, Million Dollar Monarch tells the story of a beautiful 143-year-old pecan tree that was once a landmark on the Preston Trail. Produced and directed by Rob Tranchin.
