The Living Urn has significant advantages. One, in particular, is related to the tree itself. Other products on the market may provide a tree seed with their bio urn, and the process to grow a tree from a seed can be complicated. Seed germination is a common challenge and failure rates with seeds can be high. At The Living Urn, we’re focused on our customers having a successful outcome and that their loved ones deserve a beautiful memorial that will grow and thrive. Therefore, we only provide premium seedlings, or young trees, from our award winning nursery to be planted with The Living Urn and only offer trees that can grow where you're planting the memorial (which is identified by your zip code above). In addition, our patent pending bio urn is the only one designed to be used with living trees, and not seeds. Be sure to plant a young tree with your memorial and grow a living memory with The Living Urn!
