Reasons Why Tens of Thousands of Families and Hundreds of
Top Funeral Homes Choose The Living Urn®
Growing a memory tree from an urn holding a family member’s ashes
is an uplifting option that allows families to honor a loved one and give back.
For these reasons, the patented Living Urn® has become a very popular
choice for families throughout the U.S. and worldwide.
The Living Urn® bio urn and planting system has quickly
become the leader in this field with tens of thousands of trees planted,
hundreds of funeral home partners all over the country, and excellent
customer reviews and touching testimonials.
1. The Living Urn® is Easy to Use, and Most Importantly - It
The patented Living Urn® comes with an actual
1-4' living tree, not a seed or small sapling. In fact, it's the
only bio urn in the world designed to be used with living trees! Planting
a living young tree makes it easy for non-expert growers to successfully grow a
healthy, enduring memorial. The reason we use living trees instead of
seeds or small saplings is because it can be difficult for non-expert growers
to have success growing a tree from a seed or small sapling - failure
rates can be high and growing the tree memorial can be
2. The Living Urn® provides over 50 beautiful tree options,
narrowed down to the ones that grow best in your zip code. We send
you the living tree right to your doorstep on a date of your
choosing, or you can pick one up at your local nursery and follow the
instructions provided to plant with The Living Urn®.
There are important reasons why The Living Urn® is designed
to be used with living trees, not seeds. Growing a healthy, enduring tree from
a seed can be a challenge, as seed germination can take a long time, failure
rates can be high and sometimes special steps are needed to be taken to even
induce germination (including seasonal considerations) which limits the tree
types that can be offered. Simply put, there are good reasons why nurseries
focus on selling trees and not seeds!
3. Elegant, Dignified & Eco-Friendly
The Living Urn® is unique as it is packaged in a
beautiful and elegant handmade bamboo shell. The bamboo shell serves to hold
the urn and cremated remains while you wait for the young tree to arrive.
You can also use the natural bamboo shell as a keepsake holder after The Living
Urn® is planted. Not only is this lovely and dignified, it’s eco-friendly as
bamboo is a sustainable resource!
4. Advantageous Product Design
The patented Living Urn® is uniquely designed with
input from professional arborists, soil scientists, and material
engineers to offer families and funeral homes the best quality product and
Versatility – Designed to hold as much or as
little of the cremated ashes that you want – it’s up to you. It’s
large enough to hold all the ashes and provide enough room for the additives
and tree roots, but families can also plant a small portion of
the ashes, if preferred. This is the case when families split up the
ashes, or want to keep some or have other uses.
Depth – The Living Urn® is designed for actual
living trees, not seeds. This design is important as it provides room for
Material – Our BioUrn® is 100% natural
and biodegradable - made from plant-derived materials using only water, heat
and pressure, and completely free from glues or toxic binding agents. This
special material is strong and rigid above ground, allowing families to store
cremated ashes for weeks or even years if desired, and only biodegrades
once it is planted and exposed to soil and moisture. Furthermore, the material
allows roots to grow freely and unimpeded so your memorial tree can thrive!
5. All-In-One System - The Complete Package!
The Living Urn® spent years developing a proprietary
all-in-one system, providing everything you need to grow a beautiful and
enduring memory tree. Our special BioUrn® is housed in a sleek bamboo shell,
which has become popular in ceremonies. We also ship a living tree of choice
on-demand that is well suited for your specific geographic location. In
addition, you receive premium wood chips and RootProtect®, our proprietary ash
agent that serves to counter the natural properties of the cremated remains to
create a more balanced growing environment so your special tree can grow and
6. Giving Back
In addition to the tree you plant with your Living Urn®,
we'll donate to plant a 2nd tree in honor of your loved in one of America's
forests in need of reforestation – doubling the impact! A single mature
tree produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year, however, two mature
trees can supply enough oxygen annually to support a family of four.
Current reforestation projects are in the Tahoe National Forest and Chippewa
