WW1 Memorial Forest groves have recently been established around The Coromandel to commemorate the New Zealand soldiers who were killed in the Great War 100 years ago.

The eight WW1 Memorial Forest sites pay tribute to the NZ soldiers who fell in a particular battle or to the men from a particular Coromandel town who were killed by planting an equal number of trees to men who never came back from the Great War.
