Avenues of Honour – A Term to Embrace ALL Living Memorials

The term “Avenues of Honour” immediately conjures a precise image in the mind, of a double-row of sentinel trees, lining either side of a roadway, a street, or a path in a park or garden.

It must be noted the Avenues of Honour project uses the term more broadly, to record details about ALL commemorative trees, be they a solitary specimen (as in a ‘Lone Pine’ planting or the “War Memorial Oak”); or arranged as a single-sided row; or planted as a copse or memorial grove of trees.

Whatever aspect or arrangement they have secured in the landscape, these living memorials signify a common purpose for honouring the lives, the service, the sacrifice and the suffering.
