Real stories from our Forests
Commonly asked questions
Does Better Place Forests offer cremation?
Better Place Forests does not provide cremation services. Our guides can advise you in choosing a local funeral home or crematorium.
What if I want to add additional people or pets to my tree in the future?
If you choose to add people or pets to your tree later down the line, you can purchase additional spreading rights for $2,500 per person and $300 per pet.
How many sets of ashes can I spread at my tree?
To ensure your tree stays healthy, there are some limits to the amount of ashes that can be spread at your tree in a given year. Over time, you can share your tree with many loved ones – there’s room for great-great-grandchildren! Talk to a guide to learn more about the limits by tree size and species.
What does “the right to spread ashes” really mean?
The end-of-life industry is highly regulated. In most states, you need legal permission to scatter or spread ashes. When you purchase a memorial tree, our contract states that you and any successors you choose have an irrevocable license right to spread ashes at the base of your tree. This license right is a real property interest that is recorded by Better Place Forests with the county in which your memorial tree is located.
How does a memorial tree compare to traditional options?
The average burial, plot, and headstone costs around $15,000 per person. We offer a range of prices for any budget — some at less than half the cost of a traditional burial. Talk to one of our guides to learn about available trees that fit your budget.
