In 1926 The Institution of Engineers, Australia, was one of a dozen organisations (mainly national in coverage) that sponsored the planting of trees in Canberra Avenue. The Institution sponsored some 96 trees, and on a visit to Canberra in August a dozen members, and some wives, planted a token 3 dozen trees in the names of past and present Councillors, of benefactors of The Institution, and of its several Divisions. This paper documents the results of the research undertaken (in contemporary records) to determine the circumstances of the planting and biographical details of the names mentioned, and documents an assessment of those trees that remain in 1995 (about one third of the total).
