Choosing Your Plot
The size of the burial plot that you choose is directly related to the native tree you plan to plant as your memory tree. The length span of the roots and the branches need to be respected in relation to other trees, and each unique tree needs the appropriate amount of space to grow and thrive.
You will be provided with a Certificate of Interment Rights for your loved one with the exact GPS coordinates, and Life Forest® Burial Plot Data is legally recorded with the Hillsborough County Registry of Deeds.
The importance of latitude and longitude coordinates is that they will never change. Location of burial plots are not dependent on hand mapped cemetery records with rows and numbers that are irrelevant to real world mapping data.
Conservation trail access is preserved, which allows you to connect with nature, as well as the overall peaceful nature of the forest.
For the plotting of the burial sites, use of GPS markers allows for individuals to have an exact point for their loved one's tree, and for the program to have a way to plan what trees grow best near each other. This also allows for proper stewardship of the Life Forest®.
Use of technology is key here in aiding in the proper planning of the growth and development of the Life Forest®, and to maintain a sanctuary for years to come.
Life Forest® Burial Plot Data is recorded with the Hillsborough County Registry of Deeds database which is a publicly searchable records database with entries recorded under the name of burial ownership as well as cremation burial and tied to the Life Forest Deed. All names of burials as well as Interment rights are recorded and protected here.
We have also recorded Life Forest® burials in the Find a Grave website, for those searching for the burial spots of their relatives.
