Ground Maintenance

The Aim of the Arbory Trust is to provide a natural woodland setting for burial, blending careful management of the grounds with the restoration of indigenous flora and fauna wherever possible.

The Trustees are responsible for the management of the site, and a Management Plan is in place, which is reviewed annually.

The main pattern of maintenance is:

A Spring mow of the main ride and access tracks to ensure access.

This mow may be repeated 2 or 3 times depending on weather conditions.

As late as possible in September the main mow of all the Glades will take place, along with strimming and/or scything where deemed necessary.

Whilst any of the above is in progress, your patience is requested. The larger tasks can take up to three weeks to complete, and will always be weather dependent, so should you visit and find work in progress, please bear with us.

If you have any questions about the maintenance programme, do please contact the staff.
