Iraq War: Willow tree will weep for victims of warfare.
The tree has been planted at the arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire, with strips of white cotton tied to its branches and those of an existing Glastonbury thorn to mark every life lost.
Visitors to the tree, situated in the chapel cloisters, will be invited to tie different coloured strips of cotton to the willow and the thorn - originally planted to remember the slaughter at Ypres in the First World War - to express their feelings.
A white strip of cotton will symbolise loss, yellow will signify absence and green will express joy.
