Aleppo PinePrint Page Print this page

 Presented by Legacy, the pine is a descendant of the original Lone Pine of Gallipoli.

The Gallipoli “Lone Pine” has become a piece of living history in Australia. Every Australian soldier who served at Gallipoli knew Plateau 400 or “Lone Pine” which was the scene of some of the fiercest hand-to-hand combat by Australians in World War I.

The Plateau was distinguished by a solitary pine which bore silent witness to the heroism and tenacity of Australians who fought there. Lone Pine was a heavily fortified Turkish trench position, identified by a solitary Pinus Halepensis species Brutia commonly known as an “Aleppo Pine”.
