Tree Dedication with Memorial Stone:
In honor of your loved one, we will plant an evergreen or deciduous tree on our secluded private property, located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Whether it be a family member or friend– we will respectfully incorporate the ashes during the planting process and strategically place it to stand as a memorial to your loved one. In addition, an engraved memorial stone will be placed at the base of the tree to serve as a remembrance of their life.

Our land is still very much in its natural state, and cleared only enough to enhance the breathtaking views. While there are no words to truly describe it, these are a few of our favorites observations….
Early morning clouds often settle at eye level across the river, nestled in the ridges of neighboring mountains. The nearby waterfall provides the soothing sound of rest and tranquility. The breeze on your face is as constant as the abundant wildlife just living all around this bluff. Later, a spectacular sunset over the majestic Blue Ridge mountains will take center stage. After the sun goes down, the stars will take over. Away from the glow of city lights, the crystal clear views of the heavens are rivaled only by those of the mountains. Here, life is undisturbed and unfiltered. Just another day in awe of the Creator’s handiwork!
Offering to plant a tree in his honor made my heart so happy. It’s like a part of him lives on. Thank you so much for your patience and concern during my most difficult time.
The feeling on my shoulders has been lifted as I am smiling seeing my mother smiling down on us and saying well done. I love it. Thank you.
Her dogwood tree is beautiful and the setting is just lovely.
How it Works:
We can’t remove the sadness of your loss. But we can remove the extra steps involved in laying a loved one to rest once your family and friends have said their goodbyes. We truly do want to make this as easy as possible. Below are the simple steps to carry you through the entire process.
Once you have selected and purchased a scattering option, you will receive a package in the mail with all the necessary materials to properly send your loved one’s remains to Rest Ashured. Our package will include the boxes, label, instruction, tape… Everything. Your only part in this process is following the packing instructions and sending it to us. We’ve thought of everything, so you don’t have to.
NOTE: If you prefer, we can offer a personal pick-up if shipping is not an option. Please call us for the details.
After receiving the package from you, we will respectfully incorporate the ashes while planting the tree which you selected. After the planting, we will send you a picture of the tree and a Certificate of Release that includes the date and location of the planting.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither…
About Us and Why we Began:
We are a small family owned business dedicated to honoring God and all His creation. One way we feel we can best do that is to offer the land He’s blessed us with to others in their time of grief and/or need of a final resting place. Our goal is to provide excellent communication with anyone who contacts us, and to perform an honorable scattering of their loved one’s ashes.
It was after the death and cremation of a close relative, and thinking of how thankful we were to have a place to scatter the ashes of our loved ones, that we began to consider how others who didn’t have such a place might feel. What were their options? After much consideration and prayer, we felt we had finally discovered the reason why we were blessed with such an amazing piece of land.
Initially, our focus was on those who had inherited ashes – people that were looking for an affordable and honorable place to lay them to rest. We wanted to fill that need while also providing legal, simple, and beautiful options. Then, as we talked with family, friends, and coworkers, we discovered that many people are now choosing cremation over burial – many more than we had expected. The reasons ranged from the expense of burials to the transient nature of our society now. (Whereas generations of a family would all be buried in the same cemetery, people are now much less likely to stay in their hometown.) And many expressed their desire to be scattered in a natural location versus an urn or mausoleum.
And finally, after realizing that we could donate more of our time and money to the charities we support, it became an obvious answer to the question that started out about the needs of others. We had come full circle and not even realized it… We could serve others at the beginning and the end of this process. And so Rest Ashured was born.
*100% of our profits will be dedicated to enriching the lives of others in need through various local and world-wide non-profit organizations.
