The White Wood is described as a "living monument to peace", and over the next 300 years will see a collection of oak trees manifest in a space created by Caroline Wendling and Huntly locals, with German oak trees, stones from France and over 1500 examples of native Scottish flora.

Inspired by pacifist Joseph Beuys and his film, 7000 Oaks, the project aims to promote ideals of sustainability, as well as creating an exhibition of art and community spirit. 

From May 26, Huntly will become a centre of discussion, before the wood itself is declared open by Alex Salmond MP on May 28.
