Trees are very important to Druids - all trees and especially the oak. Druids love trees. Here are some neat things I know about trees.
- Trees purify the air.
- Trees give us shade.
- Trees provide a home for birds and squirrels.
- Trees let us climb them.
- Trees are simply beautiful.
- Trees can be incredibly old.
- Trees are alive and full of energy. If you sit with your back against the trunk of a tree, you can feel the energy of the tree.
- Trees heal.
Druids love to be outdoors and to hold rituals in groves. They encourage the planting of trees. Druidry is full of tree lore, but I don't know much tree lore myself.
Besides spending time with actual trees, Druids also encourage the creation of one's own inner sacred grove. This is a grove built in one's imagination, to which one can retreat at any time. The inner sacred grove of the imagination is a real grove. It's not physical, but it is real.
