After purchasing a memorial tree, add memorial services and markers to honor loved ones and pets.
Frequently Asked Pricing Questions
How many sets of ashes can I spread at my tree?
Each memorial tree package comes with the right to spread one person's ashes at the base of your tree. You can add additional spreading rights at an added cost. There are some limitations to the number of ashes that can be spread at your tree over its lifetime. Talk to a guide to learn more.
What if I just want my ashes sent to my tree, but no forest memorial?
We will honor your wishes. Your loved ones can coordinate with our Forest Guides to have ashes placed at your tree. They will share a photo (including a marker if you choose to have one). There is a small fee ($100) for this option.
Can I have one forest memorial and spread the ashes of multiple people/pets?
Yes, it is possible to have a forest memorial for more than one person/pets. We require you to purchase a spreading right for each person who will be spread at your tree.
After ashes are spread at my tree, can I or my friends/family visit whenever we want?
We welcome you to visit often and ask that you make an appointment so that we can support your visit as needed. This can include placing a bench at your tree, helping guests find your tree and offering mobility assistance.
Why can’t I pay for everything at once?
We follow end-of-life consumer protection regulations, which prevent a company from collecting funds until goods and services are used, unless its via insurance. At this time, Better Place Forests does not offer a way to set aside funds, and therefore we only charge customers when a memorial is scheduled or a marker is ordered.
Can I have characters not letters inscribed on my memorial marker?
Yes, we can engrave Latin alphabet letters, simplified and traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
I want to have a huge forest memorial. Can you make that happen?
If you want to have an extra large celebration of life, we encourage you to consider hosting a separate, larger event, and then having a more intimate forest memorial. Our forests have limited parking and staff. Talk to our guides and we’ll discuss all of the available options.
What will memorial prices be in the future?
We can’t predict what the future will hold, but you can use 2023’s memorial pricing as an estimate for future costs. We will change memorial prices as needed on an annual basis to account for economic changes like inflation.
