A Word From Our Customers

“I think this is a wonderful idea for myself and for the protection of our forest land.”Julie Calderon
“I have searched for years for the right end-of-life option for myself. I am overjoyed to say I have found just the right choice with Better Place Forests. There is a peace in this place that I felt immediately, and between the dense, up-close beauty of the individual trees and the breathtaking views, I know I made the right choice.

It also helps tremendously to understand the full process and move forward with my life, knowing my forever resting place is, truly, better than what I ever imagined was possible.”Cynthia Turpin

“Better Place Forests is the best decision I have made for my family! I love the concept of keeping the Forests healthy while still providing a sanctuary for loved ones and I know when my time comes, I don’t have to worry about putting unnecessary stress on my family.

I never thought I could be so excited about end of life planning until I was walking in the groves and selecting the perfect final resting place.”Melinda Bachman


Landscaped, Maintained & Accessible

We will begin landscaping in early 2018 to open the forest for the public in summer 2018. Below you can find some of our preliminary design work that shows how the forest will look upon opening.
