My 3 cremated Siberian huskies

I live near the west side of Syracuse, out in farm country. I am in Conquest which has a Port Byron mailing address, and I am about 20 miles south of Lake Ontario. I want to plant a weeping mulberry tree near my bird feeders--yes I know the birds poop will be nasty. I have the ashes of three good sized dogs and want to know if I can place these ashes into the bottom of the hole that will be dug for the tree. I have no idea of the composition of the ashes, but I am sure all the hair and soft tissue is reduced to almost nothing and suspect the bones make up the majority of the ash. Thank you to anyone who has suggestions.

Hi mudlady!
I'm right around the corner from you in weedsport :). Howdy neighbor!

I would have to assume that the ashes would be just fine. When our dog passed away we buried him and then planted a oak tree right next to him. That was 7 years ago, the tree is fine and growing as usual. He was about 150 pounds when he passed. Hope this helps.


RE: My 3 cremated Siberian huskies

I think the ashes are mostly calcium phosphate. I don't know if the amount of calcium phosphate from the remains of three huskies is enough to affect the growth of a mulberry. You could try searching for those terms and see what you come up with.
