Trees of TributePrint Page Print this page

Trees of Tribute were planted in memory of those who enlisted in World War Two. A memorial was placed at the site in 1994.

The secretary of the National Tree Planting Council of South Australia (Mr. H.J. Kemp) said yesterday that the response to the tree campaign recently launched among country councils had been encouraging. As trees were being planted as a tribute to members of the A.I.F., it was urged that a plaque should be placed on each tree, he added. Because of the lack of supplies of non ferrous metals and the high cost of slate for these, it is suggested that temporary plaques should be placed on the trees until supplies ol metal become again available.

Councils which have planted trees include Port Macdonnell 45: Snowtown. Paringa. 28: Lyrup. 20: Lameroo. 21: Yankalilla. 10: Kimba. 50: Cleve. 40: Loxton. 100: Brown's Well. 30: Burra 150: Kadina 100: Port Elliott 100.
