Why planting is not allowed in township cemeteries

Why planting is not allowed in township cemeteries

Trees and shrubs tend to grow – above ground and below.  Vegetation erodes grave markers.  Items placed on the ground interfere with lawn maintenance.

In conjunction with our cemetery restoration project, the township has begun removing plants.  No new planting is allowed.  A decoration or momento which fits on top of the grave marker is allowed.  Items placed contrary to this policy will be removed.  Any item which appears to be past a useful life is subject to removal at any time, and certainly during fall clean-up.  Thanks for your understanding.
