Tree Planting Date

The oak trees lining our street were in appears planted in a single day, that being 1 JUNE 1945. They were planted just a matter of days after the declaration of peace in Europe on 8 May 1945, VE Day, and before hostilities had ceased in Asia and the surrender signed in Japan on 15 August 1945, taken as 14 August in America due to time differences. This is simply amazing. The date has come from the CCC record of trees the entry for my tree reads: 1st June 1945 - Red Oak - Special Purpose. The other enteries are all similar, only the species differs.
