We have a special area in Haycombe which is set aside for green burials. These differ from a traditional grave, in that a tree is planted over the grave, in place of a headstone.

We allow the grass around the saplings in our green burials section to grow long through the year, although there will always be pathways mown through this area, to allow visits to these graves. As a result, the area is abundant in local wildlife, with a natural and informal feel. After the annual grass cut, we remove all cuttings, to encourage the growth of wild flowers, as part of our commitment to minimising the environmental impact of our work at Haycombe.
