The Monmouth War Memorial is located in Monmouth, Monmouthshire, Wales. It is positioned in the centre of St. James’ Square, within the roundabout of Whitecross Street, Old Dixton Road, and St. James’ Street. The Catalpa tree behind the cenotaph was imported from North America and planted about 1900. At the time of the unveiling of the monument in 1921, the Catalpa was already a mature tree. There are formal plantings on three sides of the memorial. The monument, plantings, and adjacent lawn are surrounded by railings. The Indian Bean Tree, however, was condemned by the Monmouthshire City Council. Opponents of the decision to fell the tree hired a professional arboriculturalist who concluded that the tree could be treated to extend its life.
