Without Knowing Your

Systems' exact layout, I would guess that this pipe is the vent pipe at the end of the field. It probably goes down into the gravel bed and allows the venting of the field. Doing what you want would probably not affect the function of the field, but would make it harder to inspect your field. (It is common practice for inspectors to look into the vent pipes for standing water)
Suggest you contact your county inspector and ask his thoughts before you go ahead.
One word of caution, don't plant bushes, trees, etc over your field. The roots will grow into the field and eventually clog it.
