The avenue was planted by the Council in August 1922. In August 1925, with Council permission, the Pittsworth Country Women`s Association planted a dozen red blossom gum trees in memory of those who died in service or were killed in action in World War One.
These trees died but were later replaced with the pepperina trees.
