Transcend is rewilding the world by planting people (and pets) as trees when they die. Our unique Tree Burial process is a climate change solution that repurposes the most life-giving natural resource known to mankind: our bodies. A bold, carbon-negative alternative to caskets and cremation, Tree Burial creates life from death by returning people to the earth naturally so their biology can literally live on as a tree.

Transcend is pioneering the "Future Tree" movement to help people cultivate a healthier relationship with their mortality and the planet. We believe trees are the answer to the biggest challenges facing society today, and that death can be a world-changing catalyst that impacts generations beyond our lifetime. By using nature as a vehicle, Tree Burial reminds us that endings are always beginnings. Visit www.wetranscend.com to learn more.
