Plant a Tree in Memory of a Loved One

Instead of saying goodbye...

The primary focus when your loved one is cremated is exactly what to do with the remains. The costs of memorials are becoming increasingly expensive and then there is the added cost of future rents and the burden they could create for the family. The fact remains that most families want a lasting memorial of their loved one, that can be seen and visited at any time.

What better way to create a lasting memorial than by planting a tree that can absorb the goodness from the ashes, creating a truly living memorial to their loved ones.

Then sit back and watch your loved one’s memorial grow before your eyes!

All our trees are grown specifically for this purpose, from native seeds in the UK. The roots are presented in a cell formation, making uptake of the remains an eventuality rather than a gamble.

Our Green Funerals

So, The Eternity Tree began researching cremated remains. They found that ashes have an incredibly high pH level but at the same time contain calcium, potassium and phosphorous, essential in the growth of plants and trees.

However, the remains do not contain manganese, carbon, and zinc, which are important in plant and tree growth. Therefore, it is necessary to neutralize the high pH level, maximize the impact of the good nutrients, and introduce missing nutrients if you want ashes to absorb into, and nurture, a tree.

Our Approach

The Eternity Tree developed the world’s first and only bio-neutralising urn. Made with seaweed, plant extracts and our proprietary ingredients, our urn is of a similar capacity to all other urns allowing the remains to be deposited inside in full. The seed then degrades within 3-6 months, depending on soil and weather conditions, neutralises the harmful elements of the remains and then nourishes and nurtures the chosen tree, helping it grow into a long-lasting, loving memorial.

Clients can choose from over 30 forestry commission approved saplings or shrubs, usually planting the urn and tree in their garden. All saplings are native to the country, are grown from seeds in Forestry Commission Approved facilities, free from disease and using absolutely no plastic in the process whatsoever.
