The Tulip Poplar tree is a stunning choice to create a living memorial to honor your loved one! The fast growing Tulip Poplar presents upright flowers emerging in orange-banded bright yellow, giving this fast growing hardwood tree its name. The heart of the Tulip Poplar memorial tree is a hard, smooth wood that has been coveted for centuries for its beauty, strength and soft feel.

This variety of Poplar is sometimes known as “canoewood”, a term which was coined by early American settlers for its use in canoes constructed by Native Americans. Commonly utilized by artists and woodworkers, Leonardo De Vinci chose this beautiful wood as the panel on which he painted his famous Mona Lisa. The memories you treasure of your departed loved one are linked to a tradition of beauty and grace as their essence provides nourishment to bring life to this magnificent tree.

These memorial tree cremation urns contain Tulip Poplar seeds embedded into the lid for you to grow a beautiful memorial tree. Each urn is uniquely designed to include a biodegradable mix that aids in 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 urns with your loved one’s cremated ashes, you cultivate a mixture that nourishes and sustains your poplar 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).**
