WATERLOO MEMORIAL TREES UK

The Battle of Waterloo was an historic battle that changed forever the face of Europe. To commemorate this victory there were many Waterloo Memorial Tree Plantings right across the UK & Ireland.

In recent weeks I have visited some of these tree-rific tree plantings schemes. Some are even planted in 'Battle formations'. That is, laid out in Lines and Squares that were used as tactics during the battle.
These trees are now coming up to THEIR 200th anniversary. They are extremely special Cultural/Heritage Trees of the UK.
