Human ashes are not good for plant growth, unfortunately.

Sure beats wasting land burying dead bodies.

Was discussing this with my nan recently. Basically do this with whatever is left after organ donation

What a great idea for those who havent yet done anything with their loved ones 😭❤

I'd like my corpse to feed a yew tree. I've eaten enough of their arrils in my life, I'd like to give back.

I don't want energy wasted & pollution generated by burning me. Shove me in a recycled cardboard box & plant trees on me so I can feed them.

And do you label the tree with the name of your loved ones?

Steve Warren you could make me into a pot plant and take me with you !!!

Andrew, I'll plant you in a tree....better water you then I suppose!

Ellouise Rose...I could be turned into a tree 🌳 😊

A bit late on the news, this was reported years ago.. it's such a wonderful way to go!

Great idea 😜

This is what dad wants, Reah Kay!!

Huh, if they do that then they can chop them down and build cities

Benjamin Ritchie...immortalised as a bloody chilli plant or a capsicum perhaps? LOL

Lucas Dowson Nathan/ Emily Cassar can this be me pls?

Far better idea.

Judith Walshe this would be better, can be a tree 🌴

Alba cut ya red gum please

Ree Marie might think about this with scoobs ashes ..

Amanda Kelly but trees also die... Just prolonging the inevitable I’m not pessimistic, you are

I’d like this

no thanks

Catherine Dennis, this is what I'd like. Full body though, no burning.

Alison Aquilina this is what i want

🚧 There could be smoke around this weekend due to hazard reduction burns.

☀️ The NSW RFS says they'll monitor weather conditions to determine if the burns go ahead.

🚒 Only call Triple O if you see an unattended fire with flames 🔥 and no fire trucks 🚒

NSW Rural Fire Service
Controlled hazard reduction burns will be conducted by NPWS, NSW RFS and FRNSW firefighters over the coming days, weather permitting, in areas across NSW including Cessnock, the Shoalhaven and parts of the Sydney region including Faulconbridge, Hornsby, Northern Beaches and Wollondilly.

With forecast light winds, smoke from these burns is likely to settle across parts including the Greater Sydney region, the lower Blue Mountains and Central Coast.

These are important controlled burns which will reduce the risk to people and properties from bush fires.

Motorists are reminded to drive to conditions, turn on headlights and take direction from fire crews working in the area.

Residents may notice smoke and we remind everyone to only call Triple Zero (000) if you see a fire without a fire truck in attendance.

Smoke from bush fires and hazard reduction burning can affect some people more than others.

NSW Health reminds people that children, older adults and people with heart and lung conditions are most susceptible to the effects of air pollution and excessive smoke.

If you have asthma or a lung condition, reduce outdoor activities if smoke levels are high and if shortness of breath or coughing develops, take your reliever medicine or seek medical advice.

Asthma sufferers need to follow their Asthma Action Plan and take their relieving medication where necessary. If symptoms get worse, seek medical advice. Further advice is available from the Asthma Foundation website.

Crews assess conditions right up to the moment planned burns are lit and continually monitor during operations. Details of planned hazard reduction burns are available here: www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/HR
