The Berwick Avenue of Honour with approximately 35 English and Pin Oaks was planted in September 1917 to commemorate those who had served in World War One.  It was co-ordinated by the Berwick Progress Association with trees and tree-guards donated by Berwick residents. Gaps in the avenue have been filled with various species and the tree guards no longer exist.

Arrangements are well in hand for the tree planting of Wilson street, as an avenue of honor to the district soldiers. Many residents are making donations of trees and treeguards, so that the Progress association, who have the matter in hand,will not feel it a strain on its funds.
