All of these photos were taken at Myrtle Hill Cemetery, established 1857, Rome, GA, October 25, 2018

Nature has done much to reclaim the land, which is part of what makes the cemetery so interesting and such a good place for photography.  Some of these oaks may date back to 1857.  The cemetery is well kept and quite tidy.

Tree roots have moved these headstones

a tree is growing over a tombstone.  There's another instance of it later in these photos.  The second gains mention in their self guided tour app. 

This tree is laying claim to the area

very impressive tree roots

those roots have moved headstones (or maybe footstones)

nature disrupts man's efforts at permanence

a tree has practically absorbed a tombstone

The relentless march of Mother Nature.  She'll even swallow a tombstone if you give her half a chance.

If the cemetery were not well taken care of, nature would have advanced even farther.  I don't recall seeing small trees at all.
