'Treemations' Now Offered At Roseville Public Cemetery

ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – The city of Roseville is offering a new way for people to honor their loved ones – and they're doing it one tree at a time.

The treemation program at the Roseville Public Cemetary uses biodegradable urns that are buried in the ground.

A tree is then planted over it, where it will grow and breathe new life at a spot for families to come to visit.
