Increasing awareness of pollution and greenhouse gases associated with cremation and the unsustainability of conventional cemeteries has resulted in many families choosing the greener option of Woodland Burial.
For each grave a tree is planted. In time this is becoming a valuable habitat for wildlife. For example, a mature oak tree provides a home for over 300 organisms including birds, insects and lichens as well as filtering pollution from the air and water.
What better memorial for future generations to inherit?
