The Tree is a common universal, archetypal symbol that can be found in many different traditions around the ancient world. The lore reaches back into humankind’s earliest symbology. They offer physical and spiritual nourishment, represent a patient period of rest in seed/nut form; a breaking through, lifting up, transformation as sapling; solid stability and endurance through the storms of life; a balance of the feminine, nurturing, yin (fruit, shade and protection) with the masculine active yang (the erect trunk a phallic symbol straining toward the sky).
Trees are a magical, mystical presence supplying a stong, deep-rooted patience, essential to a wiccan/pagan/shamanic path. Some of the traditions where Sacred Trees are found are: Shamanic, Hindu, Egyptian, Sumerian, Toltec, Mayan, Norse, Celtic and Christian traditions.
The World-tree is described in The Upanishads as “a tree eternally existing, its roots aloft, its branches spreading below.”
The Ogham script is a writing system based on trees. It consists of twenty-five simple strokes centered on or branching off a central line. Also known as the "Celtic Tree Alphabet”, each stroke of the Ogham corresponds to a letter of the alphabet, which is in turn associated with a tree. Each tree has deep meaning. Often carved onto pieces of wood, known as wands, can be used for divination purposes. It is a powerful language of symbolism.
