Choosing a Memorial Tree
We have many unique options as shape, variety, and color may all hold different meanings unique to your loved one’s life.
Burial plots with planting rights within our living cemetery include: your choice of tree or shrub; the planting, tending to, and protection of your plant, and the appropriate amount of space necessary for your tree to grow and thrive. Also included in these planting rights is the ability to plant a future cremated remains under your tree. To create a “family tree” alcove, choose a larger size plot.
We have partnered with StoneFalls Gardens whose beautiful nursery was featured in New Hampshire Chronicle.
Your family will have the opportunity to choose your tree by walking the property with the owner Darren, who meets one-on-one with the family to answer questions and allow them to explore the wide variety of native tree options.
Depending upon the circumstances, you may want to consider multiple internments under your tree, as more than one set of cremains can be buried at once for no additional fee.

Tree Health and Plot Maintenance
The Life Forest nurtures your Memory Tree as it grows into a full-grown memorial to those who have passed. Long term forest maintenance is managed by our Trails Commission and, because our burial trees act as the burial moment, they are protected under Cemetery Law RSA.
