DUTCH BRANCH. Dutch Branch rises five miles southeast of Aledo in southwestern Tarrant County (at 32°41' N, 97°33' W) and runs southeast for six miles to its mouth on Benbrook Lake, just west of the city limits of Benbrook (at 32°39' N, 97°28' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays that support mesquite, grasses, and cacti. For most of the county's history, the Dutch Branch area has been used as crop and range land.
