Welcome to Life Forest ®

A conservation cemetery amongst a natural forest, plant your tree, and leave a lasting legacy. 

At Life Forest, we believe that a compassionate burial experience, and the planting of a tree, fosters an environment of healing after loss. 

Growing a forest 

planting one memorial tree at a time

We believe that creating a positive surrounding is the foundation of healing. Life Forest® offers a beautiful sanctuary for mourning, celebrating life, and connecting with the boundless energy of nature.

Life Forest® conservation cemetery provides private burial plots for cremated or composted remains, the planting of your memorial tree serving as your headstone, allowing you to grow a beautiful living memorial. Each woodland burial plot is marked by one of our carefully planted memorial trees, under which we bury the ashes of your loved one. Burial plot locations are recorded by exact GPS coordinates on the deed of the land so that friends, family, and future generations can always visit your memorial tree. 

Life Forest's carefully designed ecological system offers the option of additional burials under your memorial tree, without disturbing the tree's growth. And because animal companions are also part of the family, we offer options for pet burial as well.

At Life Forest we believe that the best way to PROTECT people's legal rights was to GIVE people legal rights. That is why we are the first cemetery to deed record your loved one's coordinates, burial statistics and beneficiary information DIRECTLY to the Life Forest Land Deed. The land in which your loved one’s remains are buried is protected by cemetery law, deed recorded burials, and conservation easement, ensuring the safety and growth of Life Forest® for generations to come. 

"Life Forest has already demonstrated they excel at the most important part of being a cemetery-keeper: holding the space and holding the bereaved."

-Corinne Elicone, Mount Auburn Cemetery's first female crematory operator in their near 190 year history
