Can I change designees for our family tree?

The holder of the Tree Lease Agreement may add or delete a designee at any time by giving EcoEternity written notice.

 

When I die, how will others know I have leased a tree?

We encourage you to file a copy of your contract with your will and/or other important documents.

 

Is the forest always accessible?

The EcoEternity Forest is located in a section of the forest near Pocono Plateau’s main office.  This location provides peaceful seclusion from camp and retreat activity.   Furthermore, it allows unfettered access to the forest.  Visitors can park at the forest trailhead and walk the trail anytime between dawn and dusk after signing-in at the office.

 

What should I wear to an EcoEternity Funeral?

Wear seasonal outdoor clothes, especially shoes appropriate for walking in a forest that may be muddy.

May I have a religious service at an interment?

Yes, if you have a religious service, please have the religious authority present 30 minutes in advance for an orientation.

 

Can I place memorial items on or near the tree?

May I have pet(s) interred with me?
