I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

~ Joyce Kilmer from 'Trees', 1914

Trees have always been something more than just plants to the mankind. The worship of trees might be forgotten, but still the symbol of tree survives in our subconscious. Almost every nation has myths and legends about trees, placing the tree as the central axis of the world, or worshipping it as a dwelling place of gods or spirits, the giver of knowledge, connection between worlds or as ancestors of the tribe. And the fact that you are here proves that the love for trees survives until this day.


If you are interested in the role of trees in mythology, you can find more in this news article:
Magic TreesTrees have always been something more than just plants to the mankind. The worship of trees might be forgotten, but still the symbol of tree survives in our subconscious.

In Norse mythology, a giant ash tree - Yggdrasil - represents "axis mundi", around which the 9 worlds (the world of people - Middle-earth, being one of them) are organized. A giant snake, Níðhöggr, gnaws at its roots, but they always grow anew.

The biblical Tree of Knowledge has even some similarities to Yggdrasil. The snake is present, also, an

FULL RULES WITH EXAMPLES:
Group rules!This blog will be updated regularly for new members. The basic rules are on the front page, but here they are with examples as well, because there is a grey are in some rules where a picture might get accepted or declined according to the personal opinion of the admin.
First of all:
:iconceltic8plz: WE ARE A GROUP FOCUSED ON TREES IN TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL ART. For tree photography, go to our sister group :icontreephotographers:
A tree or its part MUST be the main part of the picture, or at least one of its main parts, not just background.
Examples:
:iconyesbuttonplz: - the tree is clearly the main part of the picture
:iconyesbuttonplz: - trees are not the only focus of the picture, but they are still important in it.
:iconmaybebuttonplz: - the tree makes more of a background for the main object of the picture, but is still seen in detail. Depends on the level of detail and mood of th


WE ARE A GROUP FOCUSED ON TREES IN TRADITIONAL AND DIGITAL ART. For tree photography, go to our sister group :icontreephotographers:
A tree or its part MUST be the main part of the picture, or at least one of its main parts.


Photography submissions to the gallery will be declined, but you can submit them to the group's favourites treelovers.deviantart.com/favo…

The submission limit is three works per day.

Our gallery folders are:
:icontreesplz: Traditional art - for traditional drawings and paintings
:icontreesplz: Digital art - for digital drawings and paintings
:icontreesplz: Literature - for poems and stories featuring trees
:icontreesplz: Crafts and Design - sculpture, body art, jewelery, bead work and everything handmade, also tattoo and t-shirt design
:icontreesplz: Fractal Trees - made with fractal programmes
:icontreesplz: Living monuments - is the only photography folder, but it's only for the photos of the most exceptional trees - biggest, oldest, with exceptional history... If the reason of submitting the photo into this folder is not obvious, it must be stated in the artist's comments. Please don't submit a photo of every bigger tree in your surroundings, the true living monuments are only a few, and collecting them is the sense of this folder.
:icontreesplz: Photomanipulation - must be easily discernable from a photo, not just a photo with some filters but more connected elements, and should be in the digital art-> photomanipulation cathegory

I hope you'll have a nice time in the group! If you have any questions, send a note to the group, or to me, :iconmirachravaia:

Love her, in her grand stature
Our one and only Creator
For she is our Mother Nature
We will remain your traitor
We all must coexist
Yet we bite this feeding hand
Like a curse that still persists
And exploits this sacred land
Concrete buildings and metal structures
Ignorantly creating more pollution
Futile machines we manufacture
Blind of any solution
Is there hope for a future
Of birth and regrowth
Of healing this deep suture

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and
