A list of trees that symbolize family
Magnolias are very beautiful. They have elliptical, dark green leaves and beautiful large, vibrant flowers, which can be white or pink and that have an intense fragrance.
In Europe, the first Magnolia plants were grown in greenhouses, because they were thought to be very fragile and not very adaptable. It soon became the first largest and longest-living outdoor plant grown in the Old Continent.
The first specimen grown overseas lasted well over 100 years. As symbolism and meaning, the Magnolia is a symbol of solid roots and the legend tells that originally the Magnolia was a plant formed by “two magnolias”, the external magnolia and the internal magnolia. These two magnolias represent the parents generating new life.
The apple tree plays a leading role in history, especially in Celtic culture, according to which every tree that lives on earth has a double function: on the one hand, it is an emblem of magical powers, on the other, it is a home for the fairies that populate the woods and forests.
As a symbol of immortality, fertility, purity, and motherhood, the apple tree was used by the Celts to make the magic wands of the Druids – the legendary priestly caste – and its trunk, represented in the female form, was often burned in fertility rites and in winter festivals, events that solicited the return of spring and wished for the continuation of the family.
A tree of Life
This symbol, which we nowadays see in jewelry and other household items, is taken from a real tree native to Yemen. The tree of life is made up of roots that are firm and bury deep into the soil: in this sense, the tree reflects family, the point of origin and departure of each, a solid and indissoluble bond.
In the tree of life, there are also the usual and resistant trunk, support of numerous branches and the leaves, symbol of prosperity.
The tree of life, therefore, interlinks the power of generating life from which branches and leaves grow and the richness of the fruit generated, a symbol of abundance. Due to its strong appeal to stability and roots, the tree of life is closely linked to the concept of family, the solid basis of each individual. It is a symbol that reminds us how, even if storms can cause leaves to fall, the trunk and roots remain firm, together.
It is a wonderful symbol of hope and strength, also linked to the union between different generations: the older ones in the roots, the younger ones in the leaves.
