Tree Correspondences In Wicca - Page 3
POPLAR (Populus spp.)
The White Poplar flourishes beside rivers, in marshes and in other watery areas. The pith is star shaped.
The upper leaves are green, the underside is silver. The wood was used in the making of shields. Leaves
move with every puff of wind. It is commonly referred to as the talking, whispering and quivering tree.
The Anglo-Saxon rune poem seems to refer to the poplar as being associated with the rune berkano.
Heracles wore a crown of poplar leaves when he retrieved Cerberus from Hades, and the upper surface
of the leaves was thus darkened from Hades' smoky fumes. In Christian lore, the quaking poplar (aspen)
was used to construct Christ's cross, and the leaves of the tree quiver when they remember this fact. The
Poplar's ability to resist and to shield, its association with speech, language and the Winds indicates an
ability to endure and conquer.
ROWAN (Sorbus aucuparia)
The Rowan tree (also called Mountain Ash) is long known for aid and protection against enchantment.
Sticks of the Rowan were used to carve Runes on. It was also used in the art of metal divining. Rowan
spays and crosses were placed over cattle in pens and over homes for protection. Its lovely red berries
feed the birds in winter. The berries have a tiny pentagram on them. The pentagram is the ancient symbol
of protection. The Rowan tree indicates protection and control of the senses from enchantment and
WILLOW (Salix babylonica)
The willow is another water loving tree. Willow bark contains Salicin which is used in the treatment of
rheumatic fever and various damp diseases. Her catkins, which appear in early spring before her leaves,
attract bees to start the cycle of pollination. In western tradition it is a symbol of mourning and unlucky
love. The Latin name for the weeping willow refers to the psalm in which the Hebrews mourn their
captivity in Babylon by the willows. Willow indicates cycles, rhythms and the ebb and flux.
YEW* (Taxus baccata)
A beautifully smooth, gold-colored wood with a wavy grain. All parts of the tree are poisonous except
the fleshy covering of the berry, and its medicinal uses include a recently discovered treatment for cancer.
Long associated with magic, death, rebirth and the runes, the yew may be the oldest-lived tree in the
world. Ancient yews can be found in churchyards all over Britain, where they often pre-date even the
oldest churches. There are some convincing arguments for it being the original 'World-tree' of
Scandinavian mythology. In Europe, yew wood was used for making bows, while on the northwest coast
of North America, the Pacific yew (Taxus brevifolia) is used by the Haida and other tribes for making
masks and boxes. Yew may be used to enhance magical and psychic abilities, and to induce visions.
