- Trees have long been a part of spiritual connection with the world. For example in Celtic traditions, the Oak King ruled over the light half -Spring/ Summer- of the year, whilst the dark half - Autumn/Winter- belonged to the Holly King. This represented the waxing and waning of the Sun as the seasons turned.
- Oak trees support more life than any other native tree. They can support up to 500 species of wildlife in a single tree, with 326 species found only on oak trees.
