Unit 2 – Woodland Burial

Woodland burial sites plant trees or wild flowers on or near graves instead of having a headstone, eventually turning the site into woodland, providing a habitat for birds and wildlife as well as woodland walks.

A record is kept of all grave locations, often marked with a microchip.

A new tree does not always mark a grave but the whole area is eventually turned into natural woodland.

There are a growing number of sites across the UK now, run by a variety of organisations such as farmers, Local Authorities, wildlife charities, private trusts or individuals.
