Maybe I'm just a hippie but I really like it! I can imagine the comfort it would give family to watch the tree grow and the next generation being able to sit beneath it. *warm, fuzzy feeling*

Plus knowing that you, even in death, are contributing positively to the Earth and the people in it rather than taking up space in the ground with non-biodegradable materials like clothing, shoes, coffins, etc. and rotting away in space that could be used for something else is pretty inspiring. Plus it's safer! A big issue in antiquity (and still in some undeveloped countries) is the buried poisoning the well water in the ground. Ew!

I really, really like this idea. Why hadn't someone thought of this before???

Me too! I wanted a green burial anyways and thought this was amazing.

This. Word for word!

I absolutely love this idea and I'm sure it's also a lot easier on a family's wallet as well.

I only voted "no" because I wouldn't want to be cremated.

I'm all for interesting ways to handle my remains. I don't want to just be buried in the ground with a bunch of other people. A tree would be awesome or I've heard of a process where your remains can be turned into a diamond. Pretty cool.

What an awesome idea!
When a pet dies in our family, we always plant a nice tree or shrub in memory of them and it takes on their name.
So a tree from a loved ones ashes would be welcomed here.

The only downfall I can think of is - if ya rent or intent to move (and ya often don't know way ahead of time), then ya have to walk away from your loved one.

I've always wanted to be cremated. I did want to be spread out at sea, but wouldn't mind being a tree!

Looks awesome, but you need to check where you can and cannot bury it. Each state has unique and sometimes very contradictory laws on this. Would also be careful to plant in an area where tree would likely not get cut down to make a "parking lot" in a few years. That might be toughest part of all!!!

I know in some states (RI cough) if the land has been in the family for 50 years, uninterrupted, blood relatives can be buried anywhere on it. Have a grove out in back of the house LOL
Personally I like the idea. Even if they did chop it down eventually at least my tree positively contributed for a little while.

I think that could be really cool, and a great way to recycle my body. I wonder if you could get around any state laws by picking a tree that doesn't really get that big and being planted in the house?

Yes, for as sentimental as I am, the body holds no meaning to me after death.

Wow, how cool! I always thought that I would never want to be cremated under any circumstances, but this might be the only exception.

My first choice has always been organ donation followed by scientific research, especially if I die young. I lived with a med student who complained about feeling unprepared for pediatrics because the youngest cadaver in her lab class died at 87. So I want people to take what they need, then learn from the leftovers.

But if for some reason nobody wants my scrap donation to science, then sure lets make a tree out of it! I would love to grow into a peach tree! I love baking peach pies for people, so being a part of that for years to come would make my spirit rest so well.

this isn't really for me. trees die, so it's almost like i die all over again. plus, i would rather have my family split up the ashes.

Awww that's so sweet of you to do for your pets. My parents have a paw print, a lock of fur, and the ashes of our first dog. *sniffle* She was more like a sibling rather than a dog for me. I was 21 and she was 17.5 when she passed.

And I don't think it's much of a downfall. After all, we don't all live next to the cemetery of our loved ones and we do move, ya know? Besides, you could get all spiritual with it and just remember they returned to the earth from whence we all came. Awww happy feeling!

Looks very interesting. If I were to get cremated, this would definitely be one of my top choices. As it is, I haven't really put much thought into my funeral arrangements.

I would definitely do it, I actually plan on having my ashes mixed with my pet's and planted with a tree. I see no point in burying the dead.
