Trees are living memories of days, people, animals gone by. Planted in the past to help commemorate special occasions, perhaps royalty, or for family. Some trees can remind us of haunting acts of bravery as they were plucked as seedlings from battlegrounds such as Gallipoli in 1914. All trees have a story to tell. We have techniques to collect and propagate plant material to help secure these living links to our past.
