There are not a great many woody plants in the Athens cemetery, but there are some of interest. The most common trees there are black maples, Norway spruce, Colorado blue spruce, and eastern redcedar. Possibly the most interesting trees there are an unusually large blackgum and one of the less-common hickories, the smallnut hickory.
