|With its initial launch of 27 locations nationwide, Memory Forest™ is rethinking traditional burials with a new way to honor lost loved ones – now you can have a memory tree planted and cared for as it grows from a Living Urn® containing a loved one’s ashes.|
|GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO – The Living Urn®, America’s leading bio urn and planting system, which gives families the ability to grow a memory tree with a loved one’s cremated remains, is excited to announce the launch of Memory Forest™, a new type of cemetery where a memory tree can be planted and cared for as it grows from a Living Urn BioUrn®.
Mark Brewer, company President, commented, “We’re extremely excited to launch Memory Forest as it’s a concept that’s been in high demand from our Living Urn customers. Many thousands of customers to-date have ordered The Living Urn with a special planting location in mind, whether it’s on their own property, in a cemetery, or even a church or favorite park where they’ve received permission. However, we still get calls daily from families that want a Living Urn as well as a permanent resting place to plant and grow their Memory Tree. From this demand, we created Memory Forest. We’ve vetted hundreds of cemetery and memorial park locations throughout the country and have formed initial partnerships with 27 of the best and most beautiful locations for planting trees. Families now have the option to have a Living Urn planted with the tree cared for professionally at a location of their choosing. We see this as a great service to offer families and is something that will be a very positive addition to the funeral industry.”
Brewer continues, “People are taking a fresh look at how they want to be memorialized after they pass. If the over 75 million baby boomers who will reach their average life expectancy over the next 25 years choose burial, they will take up over 130 square miles of land, about the size of Atlanta. Fortunately for our future generations, more than half of Americans who pass are now choosing cremation instead of burial and electing not to take up space in a cemetery. With Memory Forest and The Living Urn, we’re catering to this movement and providing an uplifting option and everything a person needs to have a tree grown with their ashes. We’re giving people the ability to give back after they pass and also create a living memorial at a place of their choosing – we think that’s a beautiful thing.”
The first 27 Memory Forest™ locations are spread out across the U.S. and the company expects to have over 100 locations operating by year-end. To find a location near you, visit MemoryForest.org
