A Tree for Every Hero – Highway of Heroes Tribute

We are planting 117,000 trees – one tree for each of Canada’s war dead since Confederation. A living, breathing memorial.

Our gardening editor, Mark Cullen, has his hands in many things–including a monumental tribute to Canada’s soldiers. His ambitious “Tree For Every Hero” was designed to commemorate fallen Canadian Armed Forces members whose final journey is along the Highway of Heroes from CFB Trenton to the Coroner’s Office in Toronto. The mission is to plant 117,000 trees along this 170km stretch of highway to honour each of Canada’s war dead. To learn more about how you can become involved in the historic tree campaign, visit this link…

Every Canadian can be a part of this historic tribute. Look at the names on the cenotaph in YOUR community. Help us to honour those from YOUR community and ensure their spirit lives on in a living tribute!!

These coins are special collectable keepsakes provided to donors of $150 or more. More information on this program can be found here:

When is a tree more than just a tree? The answer is when the tree is part of a memorial to honour Canada’s fallen heroes. The mission of the Highway of Heroes Living Tribute is simple: To honour Canada’s fallen by planting 117,000 trees, one for every fallen Canadian Soldier since Confederation, along and near the Highway of Heroes between Trenton and Toronto.
