  1. The Living Urn™ is Simple and Easy to Use, and Most Importantly – It Works!

The Living Urn comes with an actual living seedling, or baby tree.  Planting a living seedling makes it easy for non-expert growers to successfully grow a healthy, enduring tree. The reason we chose to use seedlings instead of seeds is that it can be difficult for non-expert growers to have success growing a tree from a seed – seed germination failure rates can be high and even reaching the healthy seedling phase can be a challenge.

The Living Urn™ provides you with approximately 20 tree options, chosen specifically for you based on your zip code.  We send you the living seedling right to your doorstep, making it easy for people who aren’t expert arborists to successfully grow healthy and enduring memory trees.

  1. Elegant, Dignified & Eco-Friendly

The Living Urn is also 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 living tree seedling to arrive from our nursery.  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!

  1. Advantageous Product Design

The Living Urn is uniquely designed to accommodate actual living seedlings, with input from professional arborists and is patent pending.

  • Versatility – Designed to hold as much or as little of the cremated remains that you want – it’s up to you. Some families split up the remains and grow multiple trees in different areas and others place 100% of the remains in a single Living Urn. This gives families great versatility on how they want to remember their loved one.
  • Depth – The Living Urn™ is designed for actual living seedlings, not seeds. This design is important as it provides room for roots.
  • Material – The urn is 100% natural and biodegradable - made from recycled plant-derived materials using only water, heat and pressure, and completely free from glues or toxic binding agents. This special material will not hinder or block lateral or vertical root growth so your tree can thrive! 
  1. All-In-One System – The Complete Package!

The founders of The Living Urn spent years developing an all-in-one system, not just an urn.  With every purchase you receive 1) our biodegradable urn, 2) the sleek bamboo shell, 3) and a living seedling of your choice that is perfect for your geographic location. We also provide you with 4) premium wood chips, 5) a proprietary soil mix and 6) a special ash neutralizing agent that serves to counter the natural properties of the cremated remains to create a more balanced growing environment where a growing tree can thrive and endure. 

The developers of The Living Urn™ went the extra mile and have designed a system that gives you everything you need!
