Q:  Why are shrubs, trees or bushes not permitted for planting at a gravesite?

A:  Shrubs, trees and bushes require constant care and attention to be properly maintained.  Unfortunately, as families get older and move away the proper attention is no longer given and the plantings become overgrown and unsightly.  Management cannot control growth and assure pruning or removal when shrubbery grows too large.  Therefore, shrubbery is not permitted.  Cemetery lots are not condusive to plantings as graves are constantly being opened for interments.
