Memorial avenues exist - roads with tress planted alongside to remember
the dead usually from wars.
No OSM taggging other than a road in OSM
Each tree usually commemorates one person, the tree signifies the
victory of life over death.
While there may a be a plaque - it is the tree that forms the memorial
for that person.
The collection of trees form a memorial to the war dead as a collective.
I have not tagged them...
Some more info?
I think a memorial rather than a monument. But I am not pedantic about it.
