Before choosing your tree type

The Bios Urn ® works with any kind of seed or seedling! There are literally no exceptions. You can elect to use your own by sourcing it directly yourself, and therefore choose a tree which is sentimental and meaningful to you. Fruit trees, flowering trees, evergreens or conifers are all completely compatible.

That said, we always recommend choosing a native tree species or one which is common to your location, to respect the ecological balance and ensure better growth. So be sure to check with a local gardening supplier or horticulturist for information on native tree species in your area. Natives are already adapted to the environment and often tend to use less water and do better in Australian and New Zealand soils.

Reviving the native forest also provides a habitat for native wildlife such as birds. Not every native plant is suited to a particular area, so before planting do some research on what trees are native to the area to be planted.

Remember you can also elect to use a seedling, or sprout instead of a seed. Or some people also chose to plant a flower, a plant, or a bush instead of a tree.

      In the U.S., each State has different laws regarding the disposal of cremains and therefore the plantation of a Bios Urn. This website offers some insight into this: https://coeio.com/burial-laws-state/
      Therefor, depending on which state each forest is located, it may be allowed by law or not to plant a biodegradable urn containing human ashes. We would suggest you research the law in the state where you live and then contact the local forest directly.

      We have created an article with recommendations for planting your Bios Urn® in a public park or forest on our website which may also be helpful: https://urnabios.com/planting-bios-urn-forest-park-public/
