Becoming a Legacy Tree and Giving Life After Life.

What is a legacy tree?

A Legacy Tree is a tree planted in soil that has been infused with the treated ashes of a deceased person or pet. The ashes are treated to neutralise their pH and salt levels – known to cause trees harm.* Instead, the ashes become an incredible nutrient for growing trees, transforming death into life by means of nature. 

Our partner, Living Legacy, has perfected the treatment of ashes to create living molecules so a person’s energy can live on through a tree while supporting it to grow healthily. Industry leaders including the Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (GMCT), Northern Cemeteries in NSW, City of Brisbane, Tobin Brothers and Chapter House have all adopted Living Legacy as the best practice standard for a sustainable memorial. 

You’ll take comfort in knowing that the tree you plant today will live on in our beautifully landscaped gardens for friends, family, and future generations to enjoy. And, when you become a tree, your lineage will live well beyond the lifespan of the original tree through its seeds and seedlings.
