I read about human composting quite a few years ago (30 or 40) and I believe it may have been in England where they were considering it. As I recall, the concept was to have the body interred in a biodegradable coffin with a tree was planted over it. The idea was that the person would be helping a tree to grow.....and a bare tract of land would eventually become a forest.
I have no idea if it ever came to fruition (depending on the tree's eventual size, the land to planting ratio might not be great) but I remember thinking: "Hmmm. Neat idea."
