Woodland Burial

Woodland Tree Planting

A period of approximately six months is allowed to pass after an interment to allow the graves to settle.  Trees are then planted at appropriate distances for the woodland to flourish and not on each of the individual graves.  As burial continues across the site additional tree planting will be implemented.

Tree planting will only be carried out during the planting season, November to March, and when weather conditions allow.
