In today’s world, not everyone lives in a permanent location – and more often than not, we find ourselves relocating every so often. For those interested in using a Bios Urn, this has been a main question: what do I do with my Bios Urn if I am in a temporary place?
We always recommend finding a safe space to plant the Bios Urn, to ensure the tree has a home to grow and sink its roots in. Some people have planted their Bios Urn in the backyards of churches, on golf courses, and even on Sacred Native American land. Aside from these places, some want to keep their loved ones close. There are a few options which can be utilized to ensure that no matter where you go, you will be able to bring your tree with you – or secure it in a safe place.
Tree Transplantation service
Another option for those who end up moving, but have planted a Bios Urn in a backyard or a similar location, is to seek the services of a tree transplantion company. Many of these companies exist to safely and securely transport trees to a different location, and make sure the tree’s roots are kept intact. For many who live in homes, and plan to move but are worried about leaving their tree behind, tree transplantation is a perfect solution. Nearly any kind of tree, regardless of size can be moved successfully to a new home. Prices for these kinds of services do vary, but start at $100-$450, depending on the size and age of the tree in question.
Tree Transplanting: Do It Yourself Version
While enlisting the help of a professional service is generally preferred, if you have a small shrub or a lightweight tree, you can also transplant it easily yourself. There are many online tutorials dedicated to tree transplanting, which show the best methods to utilize to transplant a tree without compromising the root ball.
In a Planter or a Bios Incube
If you are unsure about where to plant, you can start the Bios Urn off in a suitable planter, or in the Bios Incube. If you choose an appropriate tree species, it can stay in the Bios Incube or in a planter for as long as you would like. Other tree variations, which are meant for outdoor planting, can be kept inside for up to 18-24 months. Starting the Bios Urn off in a planter, or keeping it in one is a great option – as it allows for mobility, and is easy to transport. We do recommend using dwarf size tree species, or selecting a tree which is suitable for containers (i.e Japanese Maple, Fiddle leaf fig, etc.) Need advice on a suitable tree for your house?

The Bios Incube has been specially designed to grow a tree from a Bios Urn, and ensure the tree is properly watered and cared for.
