We’re excited that Prairie Oaks now provides great locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin for families to have tree memorials planted with The Living Urn.

Memory Forest™, a new type of cemetery where a memory tree can be planted and cared for as it grows from a Living Urn BioUrn® containing a loved one's cremated remains, is excited to announce that its parent company, Element Urns, LLC, has reached agreement with Prairie Oaks Memorial Eco Gardens, LLC, to create Memory Forests at all Prairie Oaks locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Mark Brewer, President of Element Urns, commented, “Over the past year, we’ve been exploring various opportunities in Minnesota and Wisconsin, which have always been great markets for The Living Urn. We're extremely excited to expand our reach in both states with Prairie Oaks and their great reputation with truly beautiful locations. We’re experiencing a high demand all over the country for The Living Urn®, our unique bio urn and planting system that allows families to grow a memory tree from the urn containing their loved one’s cremated remains. Families reach out to us daily who don’t have a yard, access to a special place to plant, or may be moving in the future and want a permanent site to have a memory tree planted and cared for. We’re excited that Prairie Oaks now provides great locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin for families to have tree memorials planted with The Living Urn®.”

Brewer continues, “Today more and more people are taking a fresh look at how they want to be memorialized after they pass. If the over 75 million baby boomers who will reach their average life expectancy over the next 25 years choose burial, they will take up over 130 square miles of land, about the size of Atlanta. Fortunately for our future generations, more than half of Americans who pass are now choosing cremation instead of burial and electing not to take up space in a cemetery. With Memory Forest™ and The Living Urn®, along with Prairie Oaks and their 4 locations, and our 30 other Memory Forest™ locations nationwide, we’re catering to this movement and providing an uplifting option and everything a person needs to have a tree grown with their cremated remains. We’re giving people the ability to give back after they pass and also create a living memorial at a place of their choosing – we think that’s a beautiful thing.”

Tony Weber, CEO of Prairie Oaks Memorial Eco Gardens commented, “We’re extremely excited to establish new Memory Forests at Prairie Oaks. Planting an enduring memory tree at Prairie Oaks is a beautiful way to give back and honor a loved one and we are already receiving strong interest from the communities we serve. We will provide this service at all of our locations – in Inver Grove Heights, Bemidji, and Wadena in Minnesota and in Amery / Saint Croix Falls in Wisconsin.”
