In 2017, a tree will be planted for each fallen soldier with a known grave at the two British cemeteries at Polygon Wood (Buttes New British Cemetery and Polygon Wood Cemetery). There will be two planting days: 26 September and 12 October. In addition, a monument to all the missing soldiers will be erected in a central area in the new park. In the initial phase, all descendants of the fallen soldiers can register viav www.passchendaele2017.org. In a second phase, the public at large will be invited to actively contribute to the Wood of Peace by linking up with a fallen soldier for whom no next of kin have registered.

The Wood of Peace will keep the memory of those who lost their lives during WWI alive for many generations to come.

Days: 26 September and 12 October.

Location: Polygon Wood
