Create a legacy that lives on

What if trees were the new cemeteries?

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

Untreated cremation ashes have a pH of 12 which is the same as bleach and oven cleaner and have been proven to cause detrimental effects on tree health. Creating a Living Legacy tree is the environmentally conscientious way to return them to the earth.

Our process uses proven science to transform the ashes so they can nurture and sustain a tree which family and friends can celebrate the beauty that life creates.
