The Living Urn is designed to be used with as much or as little of one set of ashes, or cremated remains, as desired. It is large enough to hold all of the cremated remains and provide enough room for the additives and tree roots. We also have many customers that will plant a portion of the remains. This is the case when families split the cremated remains among siblings and plant multiple memory trees (see Family Program), or when people want to do other things, or just want to keep some. Our instructions explain any adjustments to make when planting different amounts.
