Pepper trees planted in 1920 commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in World War One.

A plaque on the Pioneers Memorial gives details of the planting.

Memorial Trees.— On Friday afternoon last the avenue opposite the railway on the north side of Yapunyah Street was a busy place. No fuss was made, but a number of ladies, relatives of the district men who had fallen in the late war, planted some 40 trees in their memory. The ground had been made ready by returned men, comrades of the departed ones, and after the planting was over afternoon tea was provided for the workers by the Barellan ladies.
