Everything you need to know about woodland burials

Everything you need to know about woodland burials

Many of those who are grieving the loss of a loved one might not be aware of the possibility of a woodland burial. This is an increasingly popular alternative to a graveyard burial or a cremation service. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of woodland burials. We’ll highlight some key factors you need to be aware of when choosing this burial option.

An eco-friendly special memory

Over the last few decades, people are becoming more and more aware of the importance of preserving our environment. Many people, to the end of their days, are passionate about taking care of the planet, so if your loved one held this issue close to their heart, a woodland burial is worth considering.

What is a woodland burial?

By choosing a woodland burial, you, or your loved one, can find a peaceful final resting place in a privately-owned piece of land where trees will be planted and wildlife will thrive. As these trees mature, they will serve as a living memory of someone who is no longer present.

A few important points to note

Flowers that are planted on the plot where your loved one is laid to rest usually remain in situ for a week or more. This means that no external markers will mark that resting place. Instead, it will become an integral part of the whole woodland as it grows.

For the burial to be as environmentally friendly as possible, coffins used for woodland burials will normally be made of either cardboard or softwood to create a fully recyclable solution. The details of the person who has died will also be displayed on a biodegradable wooden plaque.
