What Our Customers Say
We try hard to make Better Place Forests available for everyone who wants a memorial in a protected forest. See what our customers say about us in their own words.
When looking at various cemeteries, I always felt like I was going to have to settle; nothing seemed to be just right.
Better Place Forests was a game changer for me. I was actually excited about choosing my tree. The site is beautiful and the staff made the process very easy.
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."
"Better Place Forests is a unique alternative to a traditional burial.
It gives people the opportunity to express what they value creatively and environmentally with integrity. It is a beautiful, peaceful setting. It is a piece of heaven here on earth."
Deborah & Steve R.
"I was so happy to be able to make the visit to this beautiful forest and to see where my final resting place will be.
Preserving forests in this manner brings peace in knowing they will be forever protected and that I will be a small part of it. I will return to see it when all is finished as I know it will be so lovely!"
"Beautiful idea. Beautiful place. Beautiful plan."
"I was not sure what to expect when I visited the forest. I was overwhelmed by the beauty and peace I found there. The profound experience of picking out my own tree is hard to describe. Everyone was so nice and the space is more than what I imagined. The forest is truly blessed."
"We both agreed we don’t want to be in a cemetery or mausoleum. Nature was more to our liking. We never knew exactly how to go about finding answers to our questions until I came across an Instagram ad. I showed it to my husband, we attended the informative webinar. We are so happy to be part of this."
Donna & Frank E.
"The best concept for a final destination. What is better than spending the afterlife in a beautiful forest nurturing the trees, plants, birds and insects."
“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.”
"If you want a beautiful final resting place that will also leave something back to the environment and others this is the option for you."
"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."
"Upon arrival to the forest you are captured by an essence of tranquility and beauty. Unlike a cemetery, there is no feeling of loneliness, fear or despair. The energy of the forest comforts you with peaceful and loving reflections."
"When we first heard about Better Place Forests we knew that we had found the answer to our concern regarding where we would like our ashes after we passed away. Our children have loved visiting us on the coast and know how much it means to us. This is the perfect solution for our needs."
"We are proud to be able to preserve the forest as part of our legacy through environmentally sound scattering at a tree that our families can visit forever."
