Trees are powerful symbols of growth, death and rebirth. They represent the eternal, immortality or fertility. The concept of the Tree of Life or World Tree occurs in many mythologies. Buddha sat under the Bodhi tree and became enlightened. Hinduism believes in the Sacred Fig Tree. Judaism and Christianity believes in the Tree of Knowledge, Good and Evil.
Trees are featured in fairy tales. They are said to have tree spirits or elementals that tend to them. Faeries, Spirit Guides reside in forests and have a special affinity for trees. In the Lord of the Rings books, Trees known as the Ents play a big role in the battle against evil.
If you hug a tree, you can actually feel its healing energy. A very grounding experience. (I highly recommend hugging a tree when you are feeling depressed, worn out or in need of a magical boost!)
