Birthday Trees

Birthday trees come dressed in our hessian sack tied with green garden string, planting instructions and hand-written message card. The written symbolism comes as a scroll tied with green garden string.

The choice of tree is based on the Celtic Tree Alphabet (Ogham Calendar). The Celtic year has 13 months and each month is associated with a particular tree and its contribution to mankind and the ecosystem, together with its forms of healing and associations for the month they represent. The Silver Birch starts the year and is followed by a tree representing each of the following months:
