Although, trees are unable to move, do not have brains or feelings, the Anglo-Saxons have always regarded trees as a source of wisdom. Our ancestors also held many trees to be sacred, possibly it's because of their size and strength or the seasonal cycle of life, death and re-birth that trees under go, that we hold these feelings and beliefs. Maybe it's just the longevity of some trees. what I do know is the English love trees like no other nation. Yet our Ancient woodland is being destroyed daily in every part of our nation, and it needs to stop.
