California redwood forest latest alternative burial site

California entrepreneur Sandy Gibson wants everyone to have a beautiful place to go after they die. He thinks forests are the answer. For just under $3000, people can buy the right to have their ashes mixed with soil and fertilizer and spread at the base of a permanently-protected tree in one of Gibson’s forests, where they can be joined in time by their children, grandchildren and generations to come. Gibson, who co-founded Better Place Forests with two longtime friends in 2015, lost his parents when he was a child. He says he never felt that the old church cemetery where they were buried, beside a fire station and a busy street, was the kind of peaceful location he would like to visit.
