Pets Give Life through the Living Urn

New Biodegradable Pet Urn That Grows a Memory Tree!

If you have been a pet owner for any length of time, you’ve had to face decisions about disposition of your pet’s remains. Often, that includes planning memorials that will keep the spirit of our loved ones alive long after they’ve left us.

For those of us with cat gardens, it’s common to incorporate memorials into the landscape. Now, a new product called The Living Urn™ allows you to grow a “memory tree” from your pet’s cremains.

The developers of this product worked for years with leading U.S. arborists and soil scientists to develop and perfect a system that makes it easy to successfully grow a tree from cremated remains by incorporating a seedling, or a baby tree, as opposed to a seed which can pose a number of significant challenges to a novice tree grower. As Brandon Patty, one of The Living Urn’s founders explains, “we spent a long time in development to come out with a system that avoids the limitations of other products on the market and actually makes it easy to successfully grow a healthy tree from ash – we feel very strongly about this, especially because it involves the remains of a beloved member of the family”. This unique product only uses all natural, biodegradable components. As an all-in-one system, it comes with everything that’s needed to grow a healthy memory tree from ash.


The eco-friendly production process of the urn only involves wetting and drying with pressure – no gluing, no chemicals, no machinery – resulting in a very small carbon footprint. Also included is a proprietary ash neutralizing agent that offsets elevated pH and sodium levels in the soil caused by the ash that would otherwise make the soil environment less hospitable for tree growth. The system also contains a premium soil growth mix to provide necessary nutrients to the tree, aged wood chips to help the soil retain moisture and a natural handmade bamboo outer container. In addition, customers will receive premium tree seedlings of choice, delivered to their doorstep and ready to plant in their urns.

All Living Urn™ seedlings are provided by the Arbor Day Foundation, the largest non-profit membership organization dedicated to planting trees.

How does it work? The Living Urn™ comes with easy to follow step-by-step instructions. Just select a premium tree seedling of your choice from a wide range of options at the time of purchase and it will be delivered to your doorstep along with your urn and planting components. Next, place your pet’s cremated remains in the urn and add the proprietary ash neutralizing agent followed by the premium growth mix. Simply place your seedling in the urn and plant it in the ground. A beautiful memory tree will then grow from the urn and the cremated remains keeping your beloved pet’s memory present in your life.

The Living Urn™ is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional burial and, priced at just $149, is an affordable option for memorializing your pet.

    I am Aspen, Age 10, and a Siamese/Snowshoe mix. My young friend Maple died of kidney cancer at age of 2. Mom’s unemployment benefits had just run out. At the time we couldn’t even afford to get Maple’s ashes. We did know she was to be cremated with other pets. We couldn’t keep her ashes
    . However, the idea of planting a Memory Tree. That sounds wonderful, and one way of dealing with a beloved pet’s loss.
