CREATE A LEGACY THAT LIVES ON

The Living Legacy treatment uses organic science to turn your ashes into a tree. The process detoxifies and transforms human ashes into slow release nutrients that help trees grow.

Untreated ashes are proven to cause detrimental effects on tree growth. Creating a living legacy tree is the environmentally responsible way to return them to the earth.

As an alternative to scattering or storing ashes, you can now plant a living landmark where family and friends can come to celebrate life.

TESTIMONIALS & FAQs

“I had my dad’s ashes for 2 years before we chose Living Legacy for him. He would have loved to be the oak tree that he was to us.”

“We had previously planted some of my uncle’s ashes with a tree and it wilted. Now I know why. It feels so right knowing he’s now creating the air we breathe.”

“My mother was always there for me. We planted a Cherry blossom with her while she was alive. Her tree blossoms on her birthday in Spring, isn’t that something.”

“Beyond words is what this has meant to us, and how at peace we feel from returning her to the earth properly.”

“Rather than bring flowers to his grave, his tree greets us with flowers, I really can’t describe what this means to us.”
