The Tree of Life was set up by Sarah, using her own experience of loss to create beautiful ways to remember and cherish someone who is no longer with us.
Gardening has many mental health benefits including helping to relieve stress, anxiety and depression. Planting with the remains of your loved one allows our minds to project forwards, past the short term pain and towards the long term future.
Taking the time to regularly care for your memorial is a powerful way to navigate through grief. We believe that watching a plant flourish – whether that’s a shrub in a pot or a large tree – can give solace and hope even during the saddest of times.
We also believe that finding new, environmentally-friendly alternatives is essential for all aspects of how we live.
For us, Tree of Life combines the best of creating new growth while remembering a life that has sadly ended.

Planet Friendly Approach
Caring for the planet is an integral part of everything we do.
Every component in our products is biodegradable, compostable or recyclable, and we are always researching more ways to ensure that we can have a minimal impact on the planet.
Plus, by growing a tree from cremated remains, you are avoiding the carcinogenic and toxic chemicals used in embalming and burial. .

A Natural Way to Help with Grief
Losing an important person is hard for everyone, and we understand that people will mourn in different ways.
Grief is a natural response to loss, and taking the time to grieve, and accepting that this may be a long process, is important.
We believe that by planting a tree with the remains of your loved one, and caring for that plant as it grows, can be a small comfort during this difficult period.
Nature and Gardening are powerful tools to help improve mental health and give you some support through the process of grief.
