The City of Cape Town’s Recreation and Parks Department continues to enhance and beautify its cemeteries.

Earlier this week, four Acacia xanthophloea (fever trees) were planted at Khayelitsha Cemetery as part of the City’s Arbor  Month campaign.

‘Fever trees are one of the only species of trees whose bark performs photosynthesis and they can grow up to 1,5m each year. Our staff go to great lengths to ensure a dignified resting place. Cemeteries are sacred spaces, which have deep significance for the families and friends of loved ones who have passed on. We encourage visitors to adhere to health protocols and ask that the graves and surroundings be respected,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health, Councillor Zahid Badroodien.
