 Although the Review Board allocated $10,000 in Kentucky Cemetery grant funds to the Old Burlington Cemetery in 2005, other improvements and costly maintenance issues require additional funds. ​ The large trees in the cemetery pose the largest obstacle to perpetual care of the cemetery. ​ Several of the maples and oaks are quite old and have been hit by cars and/or suffered damage from road construction. ​ The trees in the cemetery have been assessed by a certified arborist and it is clear that many of them need substantial trimming or even replacement. ​ The trust fund is not sufficient to cover this kind of work. Although the Review Board allocated $10,000 in Kentucky Cemetery grant funds to the Old Burlington Cemetery in 2005, other improvements and costly maintenance issues require additional funds. ​ The large trees in the cemetery pose the largest obstacle to perpetual care of the cemetery. ​ Several of the maples and oaks are quite old and have been hit by cars and/or suffered damage from road construction. ​ The trees in the cemetery have been assessed by a certified arborist and it is clear that many of them need substantial trimming or even replacement. ​ The trust fund is not sufficient to cover this kind of work.
