The Spíritree is a biodegradable cinerary urn that transforms into a living memorial in the form of a tree. The two-piece container is composed of an organic bottom shell and a chemically inert, weathering ceramic cover. The bottom piece holds the cremated remains within its internal concavity, while the top part protects them from dispersion.

When planted along with The Spíritree, the growing plant gradually feeds itself from the biodegradable bottom shell, and the calcium-rich cremated remains. In due time, the protective ceramic cover is broken by the growing tree, which becomes the actual living monument to the loved one’s remembrance. The Spíritree is designed to celebrate any loved one’s memory, be it human or pet, and will work with either cremated remains or remains from cryomation.

How does it work?

The process begins by selecting a plot of land that promotes healthy plant growth. Place the Spíritree on the ground and set aside the ceramic top. Spread the ashes in a circular pattern around the central protrusion of the organic bottom. Put the ceramic shell back on top of the organic bottom piece and impregnate the Spíritree with preselected seeds, seedling, or a small tree. Cover the central protrusion with a small amount of soil and water adequately. Visit occasionally and see your Spíritree come to life.

The Spíritree is the only product in the market that connects the funeral tradition of commemoration with land preservation. The Spíritree is also the only funerary product that, when used as indicated, The Spíritree will arrest CO2 indefinitely, thus having a truly negative carbon footprint.

“Planting a Spiritree is a meaningful way of recognizing the deceased with a living, growing monument. The ceremonial planting is a remembrance of the past, and a renewal of life that restores the environment for everyone’s future.”
