Remembering through nature

Emma Robinson10th March 2008

On Saturday 8 March, family and friends gathered to remember their loved ones at the first tree-planting ceremony in the woodland section of Woodcock Hill Cemetery in Rickmansworth.

Tree plantingThe special woodland section offers residents the option of a more sustainable burial. Headstones are not permitted; instead a fee is paid into a woodland management fund and tree planting sessions are held throughout the year for relatives and friends. As the years pass a tranquil woodland will form, through which future generations can walk or sit and remember their loved ones.
