Camp Highroad’s EcoEternity Forest provides a place to remember loved ones and a beautiful, ecologically friendly, and peaceful resting place for cremated remains. At the EcoEternity Forest, ashes are placed in biodegradable urns and buried at the roots of memorial trees. Over time, the roots will absorb the nutrients and create a living memorial for friends and family to visit for generations.
Our EcoEternity Forest is located within an hour’s drive of most of Northern Virginia. Midway between Middleburg and Leesburg, fifty acres of beautiful, forested land have been set apart for the EcoEternity Forest at Highroad, with two of those acres currently containing trees available for lease. All of the money generated by the forest goes directly to Camp Highroad, helping to provide programming for children and preserving the many forested acres on the 620 acre property.
Internment services at the forest are customizable and meant to fit the desires of the family. If you would like a chaplain present at the service, Camp Highroad can provide one or you can organize your own. We understand that the interment often falls within a difficult time of mourning, and we desire to assist you in any way we can during the internment service.
Highroad has a variety of trees to offer. The trees vary in species, size, age, and location. The lease price of a tree depends on its size.
Cost For Each Interment: $300.00
