Reasons Why Tens of Thousands of Families and Hundreds of Top Funeral Homes Choose The Living Urn®
Growing a memory tree from our special BioUrn® holding a family member’s cremated remains is an uplifting option that allows families to honor a loved one and give back. For these reasons, the patented Living Urn® has become a very popular choice for families throughout the U.S. and worldwide.
The Living Urn® bio urn and planting system has quickly become the leader in this field with tens of thousands of trees planted, hundreds of funeral home partners all over the country, and excellent customer reviews and touching testimonials.
1. The Living Urn® is Easy to Use, and Most Importantly - It Works!
The patented Living Urn® comes with an actual 2-4 foot living tree, not a seed or small sapling. In fact, it's the only bio urn in the world designed to be used with living trees! Planting a living young tree makes it easy for non-expert growers to successfully grow a healthy, enduring memorial. The reason we use living trees instead of seeds or small saplings is because it can be difficult for non-expert growers to have success growing a tree from a seed or small sapling - failure rates can be high and growing the tree memorial can be a challenge.
2. Tree Options
We provide over 50 beautiful tree options, narrowed down to the ones that grow best in your zip code. We send the living tree right to the doorstep of your customer (or to your funeral home, if preferred). Alternatively, families can pick one up at a local nursery then follow the instructions provided to plant with The Living Urn.
There are important reasons why The Living Urn is designed to be used with living trees and not seeds or small saplings. Growing a healthy, enduring tree from a seed or small sapling can be a challenge and failure rates can be high. Simply put, there are good reasons why nurseries focus on selling trees and not seeds or small saplings!
3. Elegant, Dignified & Eco-Friendly
The Living Urn® is unique as it is packaged in a beautiful and elegant handmade bamboo shell. The bamboo shell serves to hold the urn and cremated remains while you wait for the young tree to arrive. You can also use the natural bamboo shell as a keepsake holder after The Living Urn® is planted. Not only is this lovely and dignified, it’s eco-friendly as bamboo is a sustainable resource!
4. Advantageous Product Design
The patented Living Urn® is uniquely designed with input from professional arborists, soil scientists, and material engineers to offer families and funeral homes the best quality product and system.
Depth – The Living Urn® is designed for actual living trees, not seeds. This design is important as it provides room for roots.
Material – Our BioUrn® is 100% natural and biodegradable - made from plant-derived materials using only water, heat and pressure, and completely free from glues or toxic binding agents. This special material is strong and rigid above ground, allowing families to store cremated ashes for weeks or even years if desired, and only biodegrades once it is planted and exposed to soil and moisture. Furthermore, the material allows roots to grow freely and unimpeded so your memorial tree can thrive!
5. All-In-One System - The Complete Package!
The Living Urn® spent years developing a proprietary all-in-one system, providing everything you need to grow a beautiful and enduring memory tree. Our special BioUrn® is housed in a sleek bamboo shell, which has become popular in ceremonies. We also ship a living tree of choice on-demand that is well suited for your specific geographic location. In addition, you receive premium wood chips and RootProtect®, our proprietary soil additive to create a more balanced growing environment so your special tree can grow and thrive!
6. Giving Back
In addition to the tree you plant with your Living Urn®, we'll donate to plant a 2nd tree in honor of your loved in one of America's forests in need of reforestation – doubling the impact! A single mature tree produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year, however, two mature trees can supply enough oxygen annually to support a family of four. The current reforestation project is in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.
