This was an amazing experience, beautiful forest and the best guide ever. We selected a beautiful redwood that we love!

Terri's and Alethea's enthusiasm for the forest and trees was infectious. They were not only knowledgeable and professional, but also compassionate and caring. The process of selecting a tree was deeply spiritual as well as fun. I am a tree-hugging conservationist and Better Place Forests is exactly what I had in mind whenever I contemplated the disposition of my ashes. The ability to spread my pets' ashes in advance of my own gives me a real sense of connection with my tree and the whole forest, the whole earth really!

After visiting Better Places and taking an hour tour of the forest with the wonderful people there, I made up my mind that the forest will be a place for me and my family. I have always put off planning and never considered it to be fun, on the contrary, I figured it would make me feel uneasy at best. I was so wrong. It was actually fun! The staff was very upbeat, we took wonderful pictures, and there was no pressure at all, either way.
