3. Visit your location and watch it grow

Connect, spend time and know you can come back to spend time in your chosen Living Legacy Forest or Gardens and watch it grow, change and blossom through the seasons.

The science and truth about ashes​

The myth is that human ashes are the same as wood ashes, and are good for nature. The truth is, untreated cremation ashes have the same pH as bleach and oven cleaner and are proven to cause lasting harm to soil and tree health.

We have perfected an organic treatment that detoxifies and unlocks hidden nutrients from human ashes so they can return to nature in a sustainable, eco-friendly way.

The Living Legacy treatment converts the ashes into organic micronutrients which are directly infused into the memorial tree to support its growth and create new life.
