Tree vs. Headstone

picture

Cemeteries are loaded with various tree species, some common and some rare. Whether a cemetery is on level or sloped ground, the trees provide a most impressive feature. Weeping Willows have an ideal shape to signify sorrow, well suited for a cemetery. Memorial engravings from the 18th century often included a Weeping Willow. The old trees represent a peaceful place where you put your loved ones to rest. However, place your loved ones away from the tree trunks when picking out a grave plot. The tree trunk can take over a headstone as you see in the photos below the tree can eat the headstone right up.
