Friday, November 9th, The Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign, in collaboration with Lower Trent Conservation, held a special ceremony in Trenton, ON to thank Tree Canada and CN for their $25,000 contribution provided through the EcoConnexions program. These funds will go towards making Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign the largest living memorial in Canada.

Mark Cullen, Canada’s gardening guru, Campaign Chair and co-founder of the Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign, Jim Alyea, Chair, and Glenda Rodgers, CAO of Lower Trent Conservation, Mayor Jim Harrison, MP Neil Ellis, and MPP Todd Smith participated in a
special Remembrance Ceremony which included the Colour Party from the local Legion.

The ceremony concluded with remarks by LCol Steve Camps, representing CFB Trenton, before a ceremonial wreath was laid within the tree planting area. A special Vimy Oak tree was planted at the site with an additional 50 trees also being planted by local volunteers, adding to the thousands of trees planted previously by the Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign.
