Better Place Forests

Body Care After Death

Leave the earth, better.  With Better Place Forests, your ashes are mixed with soil and placed at the base of your tree, continuing the life cycle of the forest.

Officiants of your choice lead a private, personal memorial ceremony. After your ashes are placed beneath your tree, wildflower seeds are scattered to symbolize the forest’s continuous regrowth.

A custom memorial marker is reminiscent of those used by the US Geological Survey (USGS) to mark important locations. This signals your special place while respecting the natural aesthetic of the forest.
