For Funeral Directors

Our goal is to ensure that the process for Death Care Industry professionals is as simple as possible.

Step 1

Contact us if a family is interested in our burial services by calling 603-315-0790 or emailing us.

Step 2

A member of the Life Forest staff will work with the family to arrange for choosing their tree and burial plot location.

Step 3

The family's Funeral director works directly with the family to arrange for burial services if desired and will reach out to Life Forest to schedule a time and date of service.

Step 4

Payment of burial plot will be collected by a Life Forest representative or the family’s funeral service provider and paid to the Life Forest up to one week prior to burial.

Life Forest will assist in any way possible, including picking up or shipping of cremated or composted remains, storage of cremated or composted remains until burial, as well as providing marketing information to support funeral homes in education to families about Life Forest.

Life Forest’s Charitable Mission:

Mel’s mother, Elise, lost her son David and mourned this loss until the day she died. To honor David and Elise, we donate burial plots to the Children’s Burial Assistance, our chosen charitable mission. We are proud of our partnership with Children’s Burial Assistance, a non-profit organization which provides donated burial plots throughout the United States States. Contact us and we will direct you to a simple online application form if you have a family in need who has lost a child.

Contact us and we will guide you through the next steps.
