Aleppo PinePrint Page Print this page

An Aleppo Pine commemorates those who served in World War One. 

The Lone Pine was a solitary tree on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey, which marked the site of the Battle of Lone Pine in 1915. Pines which are planted as a memorial to the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought in Gallipoli are also known as "Lone Pines" or "Gallipoli Pines", referencing the original tree.

Note : As at 14-January-2015, the tree has been removed due to plant disease.  A new tree will be planted when a suitable sapling can be found.
