I've had this idea floating around in my head for a while now.
WHAT IF a familly decided to take up the tradition of cremation- like for instance ME my husband, children, grandchildren, etc.... and with our ashes
a single tree was planted for each person and Wah-lah.. and orchard or a forest grew ? Wouldnt that be great? NOT a graveyard but an orchard instead?
also we could use the decomosing humans to help the plants growth, wouldnt it just be easier to have 3 trees min. planted for each human thats
the problem with us humans is we are too sentimental, no way most people would agree to this even though it would be better for the race as a whole
Interesting idea. You would not need to be cremated necessarily. You could be buried in a burial cloth and have a tree or trees planted as your
gravestone per say.
I am sure if that would catch on you would hear stuff like:
"You know that forest is hunted."
"I seen some strange lights in those trees."
"When the wind blows through the trees I swear I hear the dead whispering."
"Look at that tree I see the face of (insert name here) in the outline of the bark"
Yeah there are alot of factors to consider... like the weather especially!
People would freak if they came up to visit Grandma but found her tree had been destroyed by lightening. "ACK! GRANDMA went to HELL!" or something
to that nature.. (maybe grandma was a bad example cause I love my grandma)
