                      American Sweet Gum is famous for its striking feature - its shiny, star-like, green foliage that changes into yellow, red, orange and purple during Fall. It grows like a pyramid during its formative years, but will change into a ring-like canopy as it matures. You will need enough space for its roots to grow since it forms an important taproot that can resist high level of soil moisture. Aside from using its bark's resin to produce chewing gums, it also has medicinal benefits and can also be used in perfumes. It is also a typical source of plywood and hardwood. The American Sweet Gum can grow up to 75 feet high, with a width of 50 feet. It loves full sun and requires to be under the sun for at least 6 hours. It is tolerant to dry soil and doesn't need irrigation once established. It is low maintenance so it is easy to take care of.

                      Wonderful service

                      I lost my Husky of 18 years, and this was a great way to memorialize her. I received the urn and the tree within a week, and the quality of both was outstanding. I highly recommend this company and the services they offer.

                      Quality service

                      I ordered the urn and willow for my dog’s cremains. The service was easy to use, with clear instructions and useful information. The living urn couldn’t be simpler to use (I was concerned it might be unduly complex). The urn arrived beautifully packaged (the casing and materials are quality). I had to change the tree’s delivery date; that took a couple of phone calls to the nursery, but the tree arrived in good condition. It’s hard to say how well it will grow as it’s deciduous and newly planted, but it seems healthy. Overall, I’m very happy with both the urn and the service. I would strong recommend this company.

                      Azalea for my cat

                      The instructions were so helpful. I appreciated the direction and ease of use. The plant came and was in wonderful condition. The helpful zone configurator made it very easy to be sure I picked a plant that would do well in my area.

                      Lovely Tribute

                      The kit arrived quickly with all of the components needed to create a lovely tribute to my late dog. No issues putting everything together, except the biodegradable urn is really big for animal ashes and requires a huge hole to plant. I understand that an urn of this size is important for the volume of human ashes, but maybe make a smaller one for pets that’s easier to plant? Just a thought for a future product. Anyway, a very nice kit overall.

                      Really nice urn - my dog passed last month and have been looking for something special for her. Love the personalization and that it's affordable - thanks!
