The Grove of the Dead

I present to you the graveyards of the Alfar.  In the Deep Wood, they do not bury their dead, but give them to a specially made and maintained grove of trees.  These trees absorb the dead, thriving on the bodies and integrating the bones into their trunks as they grow.  When the Alfar empire fell the Alfar stopped performing their funeral rites.  The Groves went from being final resting places to being places of restless spirits.
