The Sacred Language of Trees by A. T. Mann

Trees have occupied our imaginations since the dawn of time.  Their very shape and presence bring to mind things largertrees than life – a spiritual world and connectedness with the universe at large.

This book is a survey of trees and their mythology through the ages.  In it, the author explores the imagery of trees in a smorgasbord of world religions including Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Native American, and others. He includes ancient myths of the Greek, Norse, and Celtic varieties as well.

Mann also discusses the psychological aspects of trees and how they figured into the work of Carl Jung. 

The book has a certain New Age style to it, but it’s worth reading if you have an interest in world myth and folklore, or just like trees and ponder their significance to us.
