We have perfected the treatment of ash to create living molecules so a persons energy can live on through trees.
Through your tree’s seeds and seedlings your lineage will live well beyond the lifespan of the original tree.
Industry leaders such as; GMCT, SMCT, Tobin Brothers, Trilogy & Chapter House adopt Living Legacy as the best practice standard for sustainable memorials.
Untreated cremation ashes are proven to be harmful to soil and tree health due to their high pH and salt content.
This image exhibits typical results of untreated cremated remains on tree health with 90% of trees dying within 14 days.
The Living Legacy treatment promotes an environmentally preferable solution to the burial of cremated loved ones. Untreated ashes contain extremely high levels of salt, phosphorous and pH level that are not only disruptive to the sensitive chemical and biological balance of soils but also inhibit plant growth and correlate to other environmental issues such as salinity, eutrophication, and acidity.
Biodegradable urns have been unable to remedy these environmental impacts, rather serving to delay impacts on soil and plant life from untreated ashes.
The living legacy treatment addresses these issues directly by returning the chemical composition of remains within ranges that are conducive to plant life and support a symbiotic relationship between the plant and biota within the soil.
The below list contains the composition of cremated remains.
