About This Item

lbwood

This is one of a series of heart-shaped items obtained from different places and converted into travel bugs. They are named either for the places of their origin or for Texas Panhandle-South Plains towns with interesting names or histories.  

Notrees is an unincorporated community in west central Ector County.  The area began to develop in the 1940s following the discovery of large oil fields including the TXL Field.  Notrees was known at various times as Caprock and Strawberry.  Local merchant Charles Brown petitioned for a post office and selected the descriptive name of Notrees. Reportedly, the community once had a single native tree but it was destroyed during the construction of a Shell Oil Company gas plant.  The community thrived during the 1950s and 1960s. In 1966, the population was 338 and the area was supported by several oil company camps and a few businesses. The community began to decline by the 1980s as a result of oil companies abandoning the camps that once provided housing for employees and their families because of an improved infrastructure that enabled workers to live elsewhere and commute to Notrees.  The community's small population currently supports four businesses and a post office.
