In 2017, a tree will be planted for each fallen soldier with a known grave at the two British cemeteries of Polygon Wood, CWGC Buttes New British Cemetery and CWGC Polygon Wood Cemetery. In addition to this, a monument for all the missing soldiers will be erected in a central area in the new park. The Wood of Peace will keep the memory of those who lost their lives during WWI alive for many generations to come.
There will be two planting days: 26 September and 12 October. Everyone who wants to plant a tree for a fallen soldier can register online. They can link up with the fallen soldier for whom they are planting a tree through his personal file.
End of registration: 31/08/2017
26 september and 12 oktober 2017: Planting day
Polygon Wood, Zonnebeke
