Leaving a Legacy

Living Legacy Forest Memorial trees provide a beautiful, environmentally conscientious way to return one’s ashes to the earth. It is also a popular contemporary option for people seeking an alternative to gravestones and cremation plots.

Planting a memorial tree or family tree acknowledges the effect our loved ones have had on our world. And as the tree matures, it will continue to positively impact families for the generations who visit it.

Living Legacy Forests have formulated a proven and scientific process to transform cremated ashes into organic micronutrients which are directly infused into the memorial tree.

Your chosen Living Legacy Memorial Tree with your specially treated ashes are planted in your chosen location to live on for generations to come.

Your legacy makes a positive impact on the environment with the inclusion of 200 trees planted in your name.
Be part of the shift towards sustainable memorials by choosing to become a tree and help create amazing new forests in open spaces for generations to come.

3 Steps to creating your living legacy

Living Legacy Tree

1. Choose your tree & location

Choosing and planting your “Living Legacy” memorial tree lets you create a personal and fitting tribute for family, friends and future generations to come.

2. Book your tree planting ceremony

Your own plaque is set at the tree, aligned with the sun so that the symbol of the tree and persons are illuminated onto the tree each day. In perpetuity, your tree will live here (creating new seeds and seedlings) and be cared for.

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.
