Memorial Tree and Plot Care

The woodland will be maintained and cared for with primary regard to its longevity and natural appearance, allowing the trees, wild flowers and bulbs to flourish. The estate will be using a buried microchip with a unique signature and an indefinite transmission life to identify each plot. Plots may be visually marked, if so desired, using small wooden or natural stone plaques placed near the ground so as not to interfere with maintenance. Plaques may be purchased from ourselves.
