Human ashes planted with a tree

Asked June 8, 2016, 2:32 PM EDT

We would like to plant a tree with 1/3 human ashes. The deceased was a small adult. We will be planting the tree near Duluth/Jay Cooke area... but not in park. What nutrients will we need to add? Any special instructions?

I don't think that any extra nutrients would be necessary, unless a soil test indicates an improper balance. Here is a link:
