ABOUT

These trees were planted in 1918 to honour local fallen soldiers from WWI.

In 2001, the trees were reported to be unsafe and the community was on the verge of losing the memorial.

In 2004, a talented man by the name of Eddie Freeman, chainsaw carved these statues to enable the memories of the soldiers to live on.

These carved trees are an amazing display of creativity and history!
