Who spreads the ashes?

Learn about how ashes are spread in the forest.

Prior to any spread, the ashes are mixed with native soil in a ratio that allows the mixture to not disturb the pH balance of the soil surrounding the tree.

Each family is allowed to spread the mixed ashes on their own for all tree types (Community, Young, Heritage, Legacy, Monument, and Reserve) in Pathway Areas. Or, families can be assisted by the services of our licensed staff (Cremated Remains Disposers - licensed spreaders) if so desired.
