The planting was an unusual choice comprising of 123 Hybrid Black Poplars (Populus x canadensis robusta and Populus dectoides), and was organised by a local Holm Park resident and philanthropist Ada Armytage, to commemorate those Beaconsfield men who served in the First World War. 118 trees remain in excellent condition.
