The tree was planted to commemorate the centenary of the Diocese of Bendigo from 1902 to 2002.

The First Assembly of the Diocese was held on the 8th September 1902. 

BENDIGO, Monday. Tonight the first Assembly in connection with the Bendigo Anglican Diocese was opened. The Bishop (Dr Langley) and about 40 clerical and lay representatives were present. The Bishop delivered a lengthy address, in which he spoke hopefully of the future outlook. He made an earnest plea for assistance in securing Scriptural education in State schools, and referring to the stipends of the clergy, he said that those in charge of parishes should receive not less than £250 and a house. Among the notices of motion given, was one to provide a scheme for the better endowment of the diocese, and another to make better provision for the parochial clergy.
