Truly wonderful idea, a forest of spirits! Kinda like life after death. I tried to order one but was not successful ??

I like this idea! It is not only toxic to embalm people and bury them, but a complete waste of space and money.

Since I'd already planned to be cremated anyway, this is something I'll further investigate.

Thanks for posting, Signora!

I love the idea, but I'm afraid the seed would not be good by the time I die!

I love it! I am planning on being cremated anyway, and wouldn't it be awesome to have a forest of trees? Beautiful.

Hey! That's a wonderful idea! My grandma's estate has nothing but pine trees and I'm going to be cremated too so I'll pass it on to my family! Thnx Signora!

I kinda don't like the idea of being cremated, but I like the idea of my bodily remains (as it were) becoming a tree!

cool idea. I like it!
Anyhow as I don't like the idea of cremation I do not see any problem for people to have trees planted once they are "gone". What is more beautiful than to have big tree on their resting place.
