About Better Place Forests

Better Place Forests is the first beautiful, sustainable alternative to cemeteries for families who choose cremation. By establishing, maintaining, and permanently protecting forests, we enable families to choose a more beautiful final resting place, beneath a permanently protected memorial tree. Better Place Forests is committed to helping people write better endings to their stories and to conserving some of the most iconic forests in North America.
