The most fascinating of our memorial tree urns collection is the oldest, most revered tree in the history of the world. This flat, scallop-leaved tree waves its forest green foliage as the world passes by, just as it did when the dinosaurs roamed the earth.
In the fall, the Ginkgo Biloba turns a bright golden yellow. Thriving for over 1000 years, your loved one will carry on as a beautiful symbol of life to the changing world. The oldest record of this beautiful tree is from some 3000 years ago in China where it was described as a medicine tree. When you choose to have your loved one's remains flourish in this tree, you bring beauty, strength, longevity and healing to the world.
These biodegradable funeral urns contain the Ginkgo Biloba seed in the lid, along with an unique mix that helps the release of beneficial plant nutrients which are found in cremated ashes. By themselves, ashes are harmful to plants’ health and well-being. However, by planting our memorial tree urn with your loved one’s cremated ashes, you cultivate a mixture that nourishes and sustains your memorial tree. The urn planter comes inside a beautiful keepsake tin, which can be used after planting the tree as a keepsake memorial chest for letters, trinkets, photos, and more.
**Note: These are very small urns, intended to hold only a small amount of remains (35 cubic inches). If you would like to plant trees using all of the remains, figure 1 cubic inch per 1 pound of body weight. So a 175 lb individual would require 5 of these biodegradable memorial tree urns (175 lbs / 35 cubic inches = 5 urns).**
