Another option for adding your loved one’s ashes to a tree or plant that you will be able to enjoy is to plant them with a tree. You may choose to simply spread the ashes at the base of a tree while you say a few words or you can plant a tree in honor of your loved one and add the ashes to the hole before you put the tree in it.
