Avenues of Honour 1915 - 2015
The project aims to commemorate every individual who has fallen in the service of Australia with a tree.
With community support, the project will document, preserve and reinstate the original avenues where possible, and establish new Avenues of Honour by the centenary of Anzac in 2015.
It is an initiative of TREENET, the not-for-profit national urban tree research and education organisation based at the Waite Arboretum, University of Adelaide.
