The funeral of an EVERTREE-Human urn with grave plants
In urn graves
Implementable in all German cemeteries
Process of an EVERTREE funeral in an urn grave
The urn can be purchased from us by the funeral director. The route from cremation to the funeral service is then the same as for conventional urns.
Important: The ash capsule or ash bag must be biodegradable!
The design of the funeral service, the urn funeral and the planting can be freely arranged by the funeral directors together with the relatives with a large degree of individuality.
The urn is buried together with the plant. As a rule, the height of the urn and the root ball of the plant can meet the specified burial depth.
If this is not the case, because the root ball is too small or the specified burial depth is deeper than average, the plant can also be offset, i.e. planted a few centimeters above the urn. In this way, the root system will still grow through the ashes. This also offers a high degree of individuality, as the planting of the plant can be celebrated by the relatives in their own way.
The choice of plant
There is a wide range of plants approved for grave planting - including small trees.
We have compiled a selection of plants based on the specifications of various cemetery statues throughout Germany, particularly with regard to their growth height.
Ultimately, the advice on this is the responsibility of the funeral directors, as they know the specifications of their own cemetery statutes for grave planting.
We have chosen so-called deep and taproots, because their roots reach a depth at which they can grow through the ashes of the deceased without affecting neighboring graves, so that even on an urn grave a living memory in the sense of EVERTREE can be created.

For interested people & relatives
In Germany, burial with the EVERTREE Human Urn is subject to the cemetery obligation, just like other types of burial, which is why the urn can only be sold to and purchased through funeral directors. The planning and realization of the burial will then take place in the same way as with conventional burial methods.
If you would like an EVERTREE burial, please contact your local funeral director.
