What tree do you want to be reborn as?
I never liked the idea of being buried at a cemetery with the normal tombstone deal. It is just a waste of money and a selfish way to be remembered in my opinion. My wishes have always been to be cremated and dispersed into the wind on the top of Mt. Katahdin in Maine. That mountain holds special meaning to me and I like the idea of having people climb it to attend my death party. That is the picture I want people to see in there minds when they think of me after I am dead.

I came across this company that will turn your ashes into a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree.

[link to bigthink.com]

I think that this is an awesome idea. Not only does your body become another form of life, but you also get to choose what tree you grow into and where you want to be planted.

So my question to you is what kind of tree do you want to be reborn as and why?

redwood and live forever?
apple tree so you could feed people?
oak tree so your strong and make good furniture?
red Cedar tree so you smell great forever?

And where would you want to be planted at and why?

By the beach so you could always smell the ocean?
In your backyard so your family could see you often?
In a local park so many others would enjoy watching you grow up?
on a little island in the middle of a pond so you could live alone and undisturbed?

happy tree

Re: What tree do you want to be reborn as?
I have always said I would like to be buried so that my remains return to the soil and become part of the cycle of life and that I would like an apple tree...or another fruit tree planted over me so that I become part of something that produces food.

That sounds an interesting option that you have found.

I don't yet know where I would like to be planted...

maybe on a mountain side overlooking the ocean...hmmm...no idea where though...lol

I really like this idea of having the seed start from your old body ashes. transferring of your energy into another life form. An apple tree is a good choice. I am sure you could come up with an epic place to spread your roots..

It's not so much about reincarnation but more the continuation of your energy...life source continuing into another form of life.

I agree, to me this is about the carbon atoms in your body being used for new life. You get to contribute your remains to instantly be transformed into something else.

OK now for my choice,

I would choose to be a sub alpine black Spruce tree.
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

If you have ever hiked tall mountains there is a small patch of forest area right before you get to the tree line in altitude where no trees can grow. Its entirely moss covered and just some small spruce trees and assorted shrubs are hardy enough to grow there.

Its my favorite place in the woods and on a rainy foggy morning looks just like the land where the gnomes and mystical fairyland creatures of the bedtime stories live. I would like to be planted at Tree line on Mt. Katahdin so i could forever have the best views of the world and the freshest air.

hahahaha, that is a perfect tree..

<Snip>

The sap that its trunk exudes is so poisonous and acidic that the merest contact with human skin causes a breakout of blisters, and blindness can occur if it touches a person´s eyes. Even standing under it in the rain is enough to cause blistering if the skin is wetted by raindrops containing any sap. In addition, a single bite of its small green apple-like fruit causes blistering and severe pain, and can prove fatal. And if one of these deadly trees is burned, the resulting smoke can cause blindness if it reaches a person´s eyes.

I came face to face with my own death at the base of Mt Katahdin January 15th, 2006. I was working for the Bee Lady and it was dark and -20 Celsius.

I was taken to safety by snowmobile and was lucky to only walk away with minor frostbite. My partner gave me up for dead when I did not arrive at our per-arranged meeting place.

When facing your own demise a feeling of calm comes over you. It was weird.
