Does a tree growing on the grave indicate that the deceased person was righteous?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I noticed that some people, when they see a tree growing on a grave, they describe the occupant of the grave as having such and such characteristics. If a tree grows on a grave does it mean anything?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

There is no basis for this. If trees or other plants grow on graves it is not a sign that their occupants were righteous. That is a false notion. Trees may grow on the graves of righteous and evil people alike, not only on the graves of the righteous. We should not be deceived by the claims of the myth-makers and followers of deviant beliefs who claim otherwise. And Allaah is the One Whose help we seek. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
