What is EcoEternity?

Pocono Plateau's EcoEternity Forest is an alternative green burial concept which provides a peaceful resting place for the cremated ashes of loved ones.

The ashes are placed in a biodegradable urn and buried at the roots of a selected memorial tree.  This process allows remaining nutrients to be absorbed by the tree roots creating in essence a living memorial.  The forest interment process preserves a natural setting and causes no lasting disturbance to the forest floor. 

Interested parties visit the EcoEternity Forest by appointment and select a dedicated memorial tree for an individual, couple, or an entire family.  Based on the wishes of the family, graveside services are conducted in the forest at the time of interment.  A memorial plaque is attached to the tree.

The beauty of the EcoEternity Forest provides those who visit - the peace and comfort they seek.  The EcoEternity Forest is open to all persons, regardless of belief, faith, or denomination.
