I had some relative's visiting from out of state. So we decided to pay a visit to my recently departed Mothers final resting place in Hamblen Memory Gardens.... I was kinda taken back by the way the cemetery looked. There was dead trees, the landscaping was in much need of some attention. I was sorta embarrassed... even thou I was just there a couple weeks prior. I had payed no attention to the details of course.... I know they do mow the cemetery but its the completely DEAD trees that got our attention.... I just can't beleive that the owner's of this cemetery can't see how bad this makes everything look!!! and I guarantee as much money as we payed for the burial lot that at least they can maintain and do at least a little landscaping.....

They are owned by SCI Corporation. Their Web address is:

Were I you I would contact them (maybe take some photos and send to them). Tell them if it isn't cleaned up you will file complaints with BBB, etc.

I live behind Mahle and have to pass the cemetery every day. I don't think it looks that bad. If you are referring to the trees to the left of the cemetery, some of them might be school property. I do not know what you are expecting. Perhaps you should of had your relative cremated? That way it would have been MUCH cheaper, you could have picked a beautiful container, & they could sit in your home. You will know for next time.
hmmm

My family and I are there often to visit relatives who are buried there. We have not noticed, and were just there Friday.

I assume you haven't noticed the unsightly tree in the very front of the cemetery that is dead and it looks as thought when a branch falls it is just added to the "unsightly" brush pile underneath the tree? Since you pass by there on a daily basis...you probably never notice.....

Family members buried there for over fifty years , visit often and continue to see less and less care and more and more attention being given to new accounts and property acquisitions. There are floral arrangements shredded and faded let for years. It is not a restful or pleasant cemetery to visit.

I totally agree.. I just think it should be kept up better than it is!! Most cities usually take pride in their community cemeteries... and just like anyone I have lots of family members there and I DO wish they would spend a little money on the up keep..A Bradford Pear tree that they plant usually don't last because they are prone to wind damage and disease and yet they could plant a Oak tree that would last for approximately 50+ years..... but like most companies all there interested in is making a dollar and forget everyone else.... so sad..

I know exactly what you mean when they do mow and weed they turn over things around and on graves break them they just don't care. Unfortunately we have family plots there so there is nothing we can do except complain but they don't respond. Its already bought so what do they care. Typical small town USA!

This is just proof that people will complain about anything.

Dead trees in a cemetery...SMH.

"M,I." I can only guess that you are just trying to be funny, however had you invested thousands of dollars of money into a final resting place for a loved one you would be a little pissed too.

If you are so upset about it, get off your lazy butt and offer to help clean it up. Take a trash bag and clean up the old flowers. Have the city remove the brush pile in front. Show your deceased loved ones that you still care. Or just whine about it and do nothing. Do not want to hear excuses. Act or remain silent.

Hebrews 6:10 ESV

For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.

Somebody is supposed to be paid to do it. For as much as it cost for a plot there family should not have to pick up the cemetery.

for your information.... the brush pile is middle of the cemetery in the front section... I don't think the city is gonna come 500 feet off the highway to pick up some brush piled underneath a dead tree....
