Trees are vertical connectors between heaven and earth, symbolic of growth, grounded in earth and reaching toward the sky. In ancient days, trees were worshiped as living spirits. There were sacred groves of respite and sanctuary. The tree is symbolic of striving, of the force of life, the forest, a place of reception, rejecting no-one and nothing. There are two ways to love and honor creation. One is through our good deeds in the midst of humanity, and the other is in our reverence and care for our natural world.
