A list of trees that symbolize strength
The Oak tree tells us that in order to find our true strength we must get in touch with our inner source. Oak has deep, sturdy roots. The deeper we sink our roots, the more our creative manifestation can materialize on this earth.
It is a bridge between the spiritual and earthly worlds, it conveys the primordial cosmic energy and distributes it to material life. It nourishes the concreteness and shows us how to realize our purpose.
It helps us to make contact with our soul, recognize our tasks, identify our talents and use them to become an active part of the evolutionary project. In a society guided by materialism, never before have we had such a need for concreteness inspired by higher principles, by a real spirituality that connects us to our origins.
The olive tree is a highly symbolic tree and its roots date back to ancient times and ancestral cultures. In ancient Greece, the winners of events were offered an olive wreath and an oil cruet because the plant symbolized strength and triumph. At the same time, it was also considered a sacred plant, so much so that anyone who damaged an olive tree was punished with exile.
Legend has it that in Athens there was the first olive tree in the world, born from the spear of Athena herself.
The tales of Ancient Rome narrate that Romulus and Remus were born under an olive tree. The Romans also, taking up the Greek customs, turned olive branches into crowns to give to the most valiant citizens. The olive branches were also placed over tombs to symbolize that the deceased had passed all the tests of life.
Both in ancient Greece and in Rome, the bride was decorated with an olive crown to symbolize the sacred and eternal union.

Plant a tree that symbolizes strength if you can!
Do you have a garden where you can plant a tree that symbolizes strength? Wonderful! Plant it and take care of it every day as a part of your own personal journey to get stronger and more aware of your strengths!
Giving a tree as a gift
If you know someone who has been struggling a lot in their personal life and you want this person to find the strength they need to overcome it, gifting them a tree that symbolizes strength is a powerful and sweet way to let them know they can do it and that you have their back while they are looking for a way out from certain situations.
Say a prayer to that tree to help you out
If you are into prayers, you can chant a prayer for strength out loud, adding a few lines where you ask the tree you’ve chosen to support you and show you its strength and give it to you as well. Consider that tree as a spiritual entity, like a God you trust to make something special happen for you.
Make it part of a spell or a ritual
If you want to cast a spell for inner strength and you want to customize your own magic, adding a few leaves to a spell for strength and support is a fantastic way of enhancing the effects of a spell. You can look for a spell that requires leaves or you can add them to spells that don’t require them to give the spell a big boost!
