...just for fun...
another get-to-know-you exercise ...

In the list below locate your birthday to find your tree.

To learn more about your tree in detail, click here.
When the page opens,
scroll down to read how well your tree knows you.

If you're so compelled,
do share what you discover,
that we might get to know each other better.

For starters, 
yours truly's is hazelnut
which, if nothing else,
seems to explain my passion for hazelnut coffee ...

Hazelnut Coffee???? Yeesh... Okay, ya know, we can't all be perfect... :) (Always black for me....)


I tease, of course.


My tree is Poplar (the Uncertainty). Yes, the personality traits do match up, but, there's one other dimension. In making didgeridoos, I work most often with poplar. - it is, in fact, my favorite to work. Not too hard (like hickory) but also can have real flame in its grains and colors.


Have made, perhaps, 10 didges from poplar. My first was from a very old (unfortunately dead) grandfather poplar tree from my in-law's farm. My very first didge came out as stellar. And just last summer I gifted it to my Aunt (in-law) who still lives on the property. The instrument was always meant to be hers, just took me a while to figure that out. That didgeridoo has returned home. And my aunt is thrilled to have it.


So, poplar is a very special tree to me.

I admire the Bowdark, it makes fine weapons and is the Traditional wood for creating the NDN bow. Its also quite fun to pelt your fellows with horse apples. The Bowdark is very wiley and will hide from you.

I don’t know where the birthday/tree association comes from, but I do love hearing about what trees people love and connect with. 



Nay_ho_tze, you may already know this – in Celtic tradition the Hazelnut is associated with wisdom, and with doorways into Otherworld (NOR).  Thank you for posting those links!  I was intrigued by Tenlions mention of Bowdark, and read up on it – it’s a tree I’m not familiar with.  It’s wonderful to see an example of the wood.


Tenlions, your sharing introduced me to a tree I had not known about before – it sounds like a tree worthy of admiration.


Green, thank you for sharing about your work with poplar.  I feel like I’ve gotten to know it better through reading your words.


When I was a child the trees in our yard would feed me, shelter/hide me and comfort me – plum, cherry, mulberry and apple trees that I remember and love to this day.  The weeping willow was too young to climb, or to form a hiding place with its branches, but I loved its graceful shape and the way its slender branches moved in the wind, flowing like water. 


As I’ve studied and worked shamanically with my Celtic heritage I’ve deepened my connections with apple, oak and hawthorn, and begun to connect with hazelnut – all are trees of deep significance to Celtic peoples, especially those who live/lived in the British Isles.  My journeys with and to these trees have affected me deeply, and both Oak and Apple Tree have offered help when various ones of us in our Celtic circle have done work for healing and protection.

Hey Kay 

You write: I don’t know where the birthday/tree association comes from but...
Me either –
I’ve tried to hunt the origins down to no avail –
most nevertheless marvel
at how well their tree description suits them ...

Thanks for sharing about hazelnut –
If I were to add that info to the meaning of my given name,
which is Gaelic for “ancient wise one”–
I might think that the Universe is a prankster!!
*lol*

I did not realize that
my connection to the Green Kingdom
also has origins in my Irish half
as well as in my NDN half ...
any suggestions on discovering more
about the Irish connection?

My own love of trees began in childhood for me too...
I had run of an abandoned 14 acre apple orchard ...
I spent hours hidden among tree crowns,
reading books I’d lugged home
from the mobile library’s latest visit.

...books and trees ...
IMO, ‘a grand and noble combination
by any count...

I tried to reply with a quote, but I can't seem to get it to work.


I do have some suggestions, but I'm too tired right now to write them down coherently.


One thing you could try would be to check out the "Celtic Religions" board here at Beliefnet.  the moderator there is both knowledgeable and helpful.  I used to post there from time to time in an earlier incarnation of Bnet, and I hope to be posting there again before long.
