Welcome to Life Forest ®

A conservation cemetery amongst a natural forest, choose your tree and grow your legacy.


We believe that creating a positive surrounding is the foundation of healing. Life Forest® offers a beautiful sanctuary for mourning, celebrating life, and connecting with the boundless energy of nature.

Life Forest® conservation cemetery provides private burial plots for cremated remains, replacing headstones with trees, allowing you to grow a beautiful living memorial within a peaceful vibrant memory forest. Each woodland burial plot is marked by one of our carefully selected memorial trees, under which we plant the ashes of your loved one. Burial plot locations are recorded by exact GPS coordinates so that friends, family, and future generations can always visit your memorial tree. 

Life Forest's carefully designed ecological system offers the option of additional burials under your memorial tree, without disturbing the tree's growth. And because animal companions are also part of the family, we offer options for pet burial as well.

The land in which your loved one’s remains are buried is protected by deed recorded burials, cemetery law, and conservation easement, ensuring the safety and growth of Life Forest® for generations to come. 

"Life Forest has already demonstrated they excel at the most important part of being a cemetery-keeper: holding the space and holding the bereaved."

-Corinne Elicone, Mount Auburn Cemetery's first female crematory operator in their near 190 year history
