Message from our Chair, Lyndal Plant
Avenues of Honour is one of Treenet’s premier projects. It’s about living memorials planted to commemorate the service, suffering and sacrifice of Australians, some Indigenous and others more recent, in times of war and of peace, overseas and on home soil.
This ANZAC Day as we remember the service of family and friends, these avenues, stands and solitary trees continue to serve and to connect us, to each other and to this great country. We owe it to those they commemorate, to ourselves, and to future generations, to maintain and renew these special plantings. Many have been lost through time. Some communities have maintained their avenues well and others have replaced those that were missing or deteriorating.
Treenet has identified more than 600 avenues across Australia and is working to identify more and to share information on the Avenues of Honour website. Are you in a position to help preserve or renew one of these avenues, or to add one that we haven’t yet located?
