The POETREE funeral urn is a touching concept from Margaux Ruyant that aims to make mourning and remembering lost loved ones slightly easier. POETREE is designed to literally infuse the ashes of your lost loved one back into the Earth through its biodegradable flowerpot filled with tree seeds.

The idea behind the POETREE funeral urn is simple: place the ashes of your lost loved one in the pot and put the pot in the ground. With careful gardening the seeds will eventually sprout roots and grow into a small shrub. People often times plant trees to remember the dead, but those trees are more often than not located away from the remains of the deceased. The POETREE funeral urn aims to make it easier for mourners to grow their tribute trees and visit their lost loved ones.
