The Celtic Tree of life symbolises the forces of nature are coming together in perfect harmony to maintain balance in the universe. Trees were an important part of Celtic culture. The Celts believed that trees were ancestors of human beings. It was believed in Celtic mythology that the Celtic tree of life possessed special powers. It is known that when a new settlement was formed in Ireland, a tree was planted in the middle of the plantation known as Crann Bethadh (basically meaning Tree of Life) People used to hold assemblies beneath it, and it also provided shelter, food and acted as a home for wildlife. Countless Irish legends revolve around trees. One could fall asleep next to a particular tree and awake in the fairy realm. This is why the tree of life symbol itself relates qualities to it such as wisdom, strength & longevity. The Celts believed that their enemies would be rendered powerless if their sacred tree was cut down. The Celts derived the meaning of rebirth from the seasonal changes they would see each tree go through (Summer to Winter). Source https://irisharoundtheworld.com/celtic-tree-of-life
