In World War I 18,058 Kiwi soldiers fell in foreign fields and for many thousands of families there was no body ever brought home.

Among the monuments to the fallen across New Zealand communities are now-giant trees that were once planted in mournful commemoration. In a multimedia presentation, photojournalism student Olivier Longley goes seeking the memory trees of Auckland and beyond.
