QUESTION: What is an ecoMemorial?
ANSWER:
Our patented Coastal Reforestation Technology uses the cremation ashes of a person or pet for the growth and long-term development of a mangrove tree as a living memorial to honors loved ones and friends. When the tree reaches reproductive maturity, it disperses seeds and thus extends life beyond the original planting. Each ecoMemorial tree is a contributor to a larger scale reforestation or environmental restoration initiative. The tree provides an easily accessible location of natural coastal beauty, ecological importance and spiritual significance where family, friends and future generations can gather for remembrance, reflection and celebration.

ANSWER:
All ecoMemorial dedications are entered into our database and we provide the GPS coordinates, which can be linked to the satellite view from Google or Bing maps. Thus, the reforestation site can be viewed ffom your desktop or mobile device with a standard Web Browser. Family and future generations can visit an ecoMemorial in person or view the area over the Web. We anticipate that advancements in satellite technlogy will continue to improve remote viewing.
