The names of all the 298 passengers and crew killed in the disaster will be read out by their families, and 17 local children will lay flowers. The attendees included family members of the victims, Dutch King Wilhem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, and other worldwide guests and politicians.

"A tree symbolizes "hope" and "future" in many cultures", the association for the victim's families said in a statement.

"We not only want to honour the MH17 victims, but also want to create a place where everyone can keep their memories of the 298 passengers alive". Dutch-led investigations found that the plane had been downed by Russian-manufactured BUK missiles brought into the war-torn region from Russia by the rebels.

Funded by donations, the project was designed by artist Ronald A. Westerhuis and landscape architect Robbert de Koning after it was chosen out of three proposals by relatives in late 2015.

Moscow, which denies any involvement in the fighting in eastern Ukraine, also denies one of its rockets could have been used against MH17. The global criminal probe has concluded that the missile was sacked from rebel-controlled territory by a mobile launcher trucked in from Russian Federation.

The trees in the memorial will be surrounded by sunflowers, which bloom in July, and will "radiate a golden glow" over the trees, the foundation said.

The monument for the victims near Schiphol Airport will be a memorial forest featuring one tree for each of the victims.

"It's nice to think that he has a tree, since we have not received his body. We don't want any of the 298 victims to be forgotten", his father Jan Slok, told the daily AD newspaper.
