The alternative and eco-friendly solution to traditional cemeteries

Living Legacy have scientifically pioneered a way to treat a loved one’s ashes to create energy molecules so they can live on through trees.

What is Living Legacy?

Live on through trees

Plant your ashes beneath a private tree

Your ashes are scientifically treated to create living molecules and are then placed beneath a private tree in a peaceful forest where your loved ones can come and visit you all year round.

Your tree is reserved for you in perpetuity

Your tree is protected by a conservation agreement so the land that it's on cannot be developed or logged. Each tree also gets its own custom plaque to be reserved just for you in perpetuity.

Continue your legacy for generations to come

You and your family can come and visit the tree throughout the year to watch it grow. Be a part of the growing community that is leaving the world a better place with trees.

Got any questions?

What if trees were the new cemeteries?

What if people’s ashes could live on with trees? People could connect to that natural beauty that life created as opposed to what’s lost.

Scattering untreated cremation ashes – which have the same pH level as bleach – have been proven to cause detrimental effects on the environment.

Living Legacy Forests have formulated a proven and scientific process to transform a loved ones ashes so they can return to nurture in a sustainable, Eco-friendly way and their legacy can live on for generations to come in beautiful, protected and peaceful forests.

Creating a Living Legacy tree is the most environmentally conscientious way to return ones ashes back to the earth.

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.

The Living Legacy treatment converts ashes into living molecules that help trees grow.
