Next, press down the earth to ensure a stable footing for your tree or shrub. Apply a thick layer of mulch on the surface surrounding the tree and water the tree very well and on a regular basis. Your tree of life will grow up from the bio urn into a beautiful and majestic living memorial tree. The Living Urn offers a special Bio Urn for People and a different Bio Urn for pets.
