Penn Forest Natural Burial Park
Beautiful Burial Park with Nature at the Forefront
Penn Forest Natural Burial Park is Pennsylvania’s first exclusively green cemetery and is committed to creating a beautiful burial park where nature is at the forefront. The cemetery is bordered by Plum Creek and is just a mile upstream from the Allegheny River.
In addition to being a green cemetery, a third of the land is set aside as a nature preserve habitat for native wildlife and plants.
Penn Forest offers both full body and cremated remains burial sites, its mission is to provide ecologically friendly burial and people of all faiths are welcomed.
Penn Forest also offers unique services that are only available with green burials.
- Natural wood and stone grave markers
- Special plantings to mark the grave area
- Memorial tree planting
- Online memorials for obituaries, memories, military records, photos and videos
The public is invited to visit the park and explore the grounds, or take a walk on the nature trail that was constructed by the local Boy Scouts troop.
