Dealing with dead trees in Belarus

With some cemeteries having been abandoned for many years, and even decades, a great deal of our time is devoted to clearing trees and vegetation before work can even begin. However, in some instances, as with our first construction project in Belarus, the “new” Jewish cemetery at Chachersk (Novazakharpolle), we find ourselves confronted with the opposite: dead vegetation.

Here, dead trees pose a very real threat both to the gravestones on the site and our workers. With work now well underway at the cemetery, we hired specialists to chop down the trees, given the impossibility of uprooting them without disturbing the graves.
