For many years the stretch of the Princes Hwy formally known as Geelong Road West, (between Werribee Street and the Princes Hwy) has been lined with tall trees, some native, some exotic, some of which have important heritage values.

There is evidence of tree plantings as part of a WW1 memorial and the Calder Memorial Avenue tree plantings that recognised the achievements of William Calder, the first chairman of the Country Roads Board.

Due to the poor health of some of the trees and adjacent developments, a few trees have been removed along this stretch of road. To reinstate this significant roadside feature, Wyndham City has developed a Draft Princes Highway Tree Master Plan.
