Have them plant you in an open field under a lone gingko.  You can then be remembered for more than a thousand years.  ;)

Multiple people could also use a single tree each year, and it could be known as the Tree of Souls or Tree of Many Faces... or the Tree of Unity.   ideas ideas!

Instead of a head atone plant a tree graveyards can rather be forests:)

Great ideas, free fertilizer and three dozen ghosts poltergeisting my backyard; hopefully they will protect my trees from fruit pests haunting my nights not like those worthless organa bags!  Nice to have more skeletons in my backyard than in my closets & perfectly legal for a change!  Now if My HOA approved and my six maltesese stop digging them out I am ready to go! 

Imagine my haunted house will be quite popular around Halloween with neigboorhood kids over for a sugarapple dunking contest!  I can stop watching all these Paranormal show late night and go in the backyard and have a ghost reality protocal over some fresh yerba mate tea!  Where do I get several containers of alfalfa to get started and I am sure some of my neighboors with one foot in the coffin are dying to get into my Garden of Eden?  Of couse my fart will exorcist any ghosts out of my house beside the living!😆👻👻👻

Like the Great Spirit said, all Choctaws will return to the Earth Mother and make the forest bloom with games!  🐗🐢🎣

Why does it cost $2K to bury a body in woodchips? Is the cost for the woodchips?

It feels like another shake down on death tax.

It's not cheap to die any more. Better to hold off until you can afford it. HAHA

Where do you work?  The urban death facility.   :o  What do you do there?  I heap wood shavings on dead bodies, and once in awhile stir up the heap. Ah yeah, nice talking with you!

I think that is great, because of all the possible trees that can be made after that and also people can go see there relatives, becoming a tree, not some stone with most cases or worst to be burned so there relatives can have there ash. I think this is the best option.

Yep, if ya don't have vultures around to feed, this is a great
option....the forest of simple souls is a GREAT idea....a stroll
among the greats.....wonder if a body like Eintstein's would
have more interesting micronutrients than the normal shlo-mo....

 ;)
