Town of Eagar Tree and Shrub Program--Living Memorials 

The Memorial Tree & Shrub Program of the Eagar Cemetery Committee offers to the community the opportunity to use the beauty of creation to memorialize the life of a loved one, or you can make a donation to help beautify the cemetery. A living memorial, which is dedicated to someone's memory can provide lasting comfort and is a wonderful tribute of beauty and joy. The Committee can purchase and plant a tree or shrub in yours or your loved one's name, for $50.00 Living memorials are a wonderful way to remember your loved ones while enhancing the beauty of our cemetery for all to enjoy. All trees and shrubs are placed within the cemetery according to availability of suitable terrain and the Town of Eagar’s Cemetery regulations. Cemetery personnel will give all plantings reasonable care, but their survival cannot be guaranteed in perpetuity. Trees and shrubs are  guaranteed for one year.  Plantings will be made as weather and scheduling permit.   Each memorial/donation will be identified via sign placement at our directory.  A Memorial Planting Certificate, suitable for framing, will  be mailed to the donor.  Click here to download an application for the Tree and Shrub Program.

GRAVE SITE SPECIFICATIONS

Headstones and Footstones:

If a family chooses to place a headstone, they will do this at their own cost in addition to our cemetery fees.  You must contact the Town of Eagar prior to setting a headstone, so it can be placed in the correct location.  If a headstone has to be moved, the Town of Eagar will not be held liable for any damage to headstone.  Footstones are set at ground level and are preferred as they allow for easier maintenance.  Footstones cost quite a bit less and will be part of each grave on the new south section of our cemetery.  The fee for footstones is included in the plot fee for the new section.  In the old section, a fee of $75.00 will be charged for those who wish to mark a gravesite in this way.

Plot and Grave Site Decoration:

In order to establish grass on gravesites and to allow access for the sprinkler system and mowing machines, no rock, gravel, wood, or similar type of ground covering will be allowed.  No fences or barriers are allowed around plots or individual gravesites.  Flowers or seasonal use of candles are allowed, and these are the responsibility of the individual family.  Since the Town does not have a full-time cemetery grounds keeper, daily maintenance of sites is not performed.  The Town will dispose of dead flowers, tattered flags, and articles that blow from gravesites on an as needed basis.  The Town will determine the allocation of water at the cemetery to handle drought condition that can occur in the area.  Those who personally maintain grave sites of loved ones may be asked to not use extra water in addition to the automatic sprinkler system.

Prior to internment, you will be asked to provide basic information on the individual planned to occupy the site- Record of Burial.  The Town of Eagar as part of the public record keeps this information.

If you have any questions regarding your cemetery plot or gravesite, please contact the Town of Eagar at (928) 333-4128  or info@eagaraz.gov
