FRAMINGHAM – Tree cutting and tree planting at Edgell Grove Cemetery was discussed by the elected Cemetery Trustees at its June 30 meeting.
The City of Framingham has been removing 131 trees at the cemetery, mainly consisting of dead trees and tree stumps.
The Edgell Grove Trustees are looking at what trees they can plant to replace these removed, dead trees.
Their tree planting program is currently in the planning stage, but their goal is to liven up the grounds once the removal is finished.
“The idea is to prepare a plan that will replace trees in strategic locations in the cemetery that appear to be more cleared, due to the removal of so many dead trees,” said Trustee Dennis Cardiff.
The Trustees are also planning to get residents involved in the effort by having them sponsor individual trees in their loved one’s name.
