Green niches of funerary forests in Mexico

A green cremation niche is a type of final resting place for cremated remains that incorporates plant life and other features that promote ecological sustainability. These types of niches are often found in natural burial grounds or green cemeteries, and can provide a more environmentally friendly option for those who wish to be cremated.

In some cases, ecological cremation niches can also be used as a way to help local ecosystems by providing wildlife habitat or promoting the growth of native plants.

The process involves the use of a biodegradable urn that will eventually feed the tree. This type of cremation niche is becoming increasingly popular as more and more people look for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. In addition, the green niches can be personalized with engravings and photos (QR codes), and offer a beautiful way to memorialize a loved one.

What is a funeral tree?

A funeral tree is a special tree that is planted in memory of a person who has passed away. Next to it, the ashes of the loved one (cremation) will be placed in a biodegradable urn, which in the future will serve as nutrients.

How is the process of burying the ashes in the burial tree?

The process of placing the ashes on the funeral tree is very simple. First, find a tree large enough to hold the ashes. Once the perfect tree has been found, a hole must be dug in the ground large enough to hold the biourna with the ashes, and then covered with soil. At the end, a plaque (wood) is placed with all the information about the loved one.

Do you do any kind of ceremony when burying the ashes?

When burying the ashes, people usually hold some kind of ceremony to say goodbye to their loved one. It can consist of saying a few words, playing music, singing or releasing balloons.

There is no set ceremony for burying the ashes, although many people choose to say a few words or prayers before placing the urn in the ground.

Differences between using a conventional niche or a green niche (burial tree)

There are some key differences between using a niche or a green burial tree. First, with a niche, ashes are usually placed in a container within a cemetery or indoors such as a church, mausoleum or chapel, while green burial niches (burial trees) are usually found outdoors in natural areas. Finally, funeral forests tend to be less expensive than traditional niches, as they offer attractive promotions to try to gain market share.
