Default For the love of trees

Wellknown author and friend of mine, Ellen Evert Hopman, shared this gorgeous video on one of the Druid groups I frequent. I thought it needed to be shared here, too - and that a thread honouring the trees we love might be in order as well.
Please share photos, stories, videos or factual info about your own favorite trees...and watch this lovely, magical piece.

Default Re: For the love of trees

Although I'm a forest-woman and have lived in the woods for two decades now, my relationship with trees has deepened so greatly sine my movement towards Druidry. I should maybe correct that; it was the trees that called me, I was in the process of opening to the plantworld on a shamanic level, when my beautiful, magical, cherished aspen reached out to me, and then the maple...apples...oak... such an amazing gift! When I think of leaving this house, moving to a farm/larger plot of land with my small zoo in tow, the hardest thing, bar none, will be to leave the many trees that have sheltered and taught me over this past decade. At least I will have the many wands, rune sets, staves, shields and amulets their branches have gifted me with - and the heart-knowledge, that can never be taken away, only passed along. <3
