The Oak Tree's Symbolism

August 24, 2017

 

In many cultures the oak tree has always been seen as the most powerful of all trees, standing strong with its noble presence through the toughest of storms. 

In Native American culture the oak symbolises wisdom, courage, healing and protection.

"In England the oak has for centuries been a national symbol of strength and survival. It has played an important part in our culture – couples were wed under ancient oaks in Oliver Cromwell’s time, the festive Yule Log was traditionally cut from oak.."

"Druids frequently practised and worshipped their rituals in oak groves and cherished the mistletoe that frequents oak tree branches. Royalty has had a long association with oak trees too; ancient kings adorned themselves with crowns of oak leaves.."
