It’s National Tree Week! – 01-12-14

We all seem to forget how important trees are to the ‘cycle of life’.  As the old adage says, “Young Men Cut Trees Down, Old Men Plant Them”! Respect Green Burial Park have now planted more than 1,500 trees, many as memorial trees for their 250 customers most of whom chose their memorial trees to be flowering cherry trees & apple blossom which look set to generate up to 9 times the usual terpenes, the chemicals that give them their scent.  If predictions are correct this winter looks to be the third warmest since records began in 2010 meaning these flowering trees look set to give off wonderful aromas this coming year, a rare and positive thing out of climate change however, we need as a nation to plant many more trees and what better way than to honour your lost loved ones than with a memorial tree.

As part of the National Tree Week Respect Green Burial Parks are hosting a Candle light Vigil on Sunday the 14th of December where families and friends of the 80 deceased who have already been laid to rest at Respect can attend a short memorial service and every resting place will have a lantern placed upon each grave.  Alison Finch the Sextant at Respect Green Burial Park explained that last year 68 people attended and this year the confirmed numbers are well in excess of that.  We welcome all the families, children and their pets too. Many of the 250 who have pre booked their resting places have also stated they will attend.

Scunthorpe Telegraph Article, Oct 2010 A range of sustainable products have been showcased by developers of the region’s first eco-burial site.

Respect Woodlands Green Burial Park, of Laughton, attracted a popular turnout at Gainsborough Old Hall when it invited traders and visitors from Scunthorpe to its launch.

As reported, RespectGB was granted the licence in June to offer an eco-alternative to traditional burials in cemeteries and churchyards at land off the A159 near Gainsborough. The park offers both natural green burial for both people and pets together.

Scunthorpe Telegraph Article commented on

Respect’s eco-burial site THE region’s first eco-burial park is set to open later this month. A 45-acre site, off Dring Lane, Laughton, has been given full planning permission for Respect GB to create a woodland green burial park. In the park, traditional headstones will be replaced by trees as an environmentally-friendly alternative.

 

Client Testimonials.

May I take this opportunity to thank you and Alison for everything you have done to help us through this difficult time. We have found the perfect place for *******- everything he loved in close proximity. I have been up to Laughton several times since Friday and each time I find it comforting. I can sit on his bench and chat to him in peace and quiet.
