Nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty, between the Lake District National Park and the North Pennines AONB, we are based just outside of Alston, the highest market town in Britain.
Being close to the Roman Wall and many other sites of significant interest, Memotrees is a natural, green and eco-friendly woodland and meadow burial ground surrounded by incredible and relaxing scenery.
Our all-natural burial ground offers the option to leave this world in a way that saves nature and allows us to be part of it and our living memorials are the perfect and lasting gift idea for sending to a bereaved friend or family member.
Planting or dedicating a memorial tree to celebrate the life of a loved one is a beautiful, natural and ethical tribute which will prosper for years to come.
At Memotrees we can bury your loved one in an eco-friendly way and plant a tree, which is always freely available for you, your family and friends to visit as often as you like, with the bonus of helping our environment thrive.
The Memotrees land is privately owned and belongs to the third generation family farm, with some of all three of the generations still living here so when visiting please dont be surprised to come across children, pets and animals as it is very much a family environment. The copses and meadow which make up Memotrees are situated a short walk from the main farmhouse and parking area.
Dedicate a tree today and make a difference not only to a grieving person but also to the planet. Appreciate the opportunity to provide a very special gift that connects people to nature. Planting a tree in memory of a loved one, then scattering their cremated remains around or planting them in with the root ball of the tree can often bring a sense of rejuvenation and hope. As the tree grows, its roots are nourished by the earth and ashes combined and this can bring great comfort.
§We can also help you by planting a tree with the ashes of your loved incorporated in with the root ball. Using biodegradable urns is an increasingly popular way of paying tribute to your loved one, which creates a living memorial that incorporates their remains into the growing process. This can be a poignant and meaningful part of any outdoor memorial service; attendees can participate by helping cover the biodegradable urn with a small spade of earth or perhaps scatter flower petals after the planting is complete.
