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.
Creating a Living Legacy tree is a special and personal experience. The tree you choose will carry the fingerprint of a loved one’s life, so picking a tree of particular significance has the power to help keep your most cherished memories alive.
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.
Living Legacy has perfected an organic treatment that detoxifies and unlocks hidden nutrients from human ashes.
Living Legacy has a range of memorial products throughout Australia. Click on projects in your area to learn more.

It brings us so much joy to see communities around Australia coming together to plant Living Legacy Forests that restore habitat and help sustain the memories of loved ones in a sustainable way.
Our technology doesn’t just detoxify the harmful nature of ash, it restores the essential soil biology that enables the soil and the tree to exchange energy and create new life.
Living Legacy Forest was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2013 to establish best practice standards for green memorials in cremation. Our leading organic technology has been adopted by Government-regulated cemetery trusts and is suitable for both Native and Exotic Trees in a range of soil conditions.
