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.

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. 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.   
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:
- the tree is clearly the main part of the picture
- trees are not the only focus of the picture, but they are still important in it.
- maybe - 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 the admin. The border of what is a main part is qui

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:

Examples:
Slavic Oak by MirachRavaia Wintermorning by LeenOne - the tree is clearly the main part of the picture
Forest by Moolver-sin Story by JoaRosa - trees are not the only focus of the picture, but they are still important in it.
Winterland Snowy Owl by SuliannH Winter Robin by rebeccahirst - maybe - 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 the admin. The border of what is a main part is quite thin, so forgive us if your definition is different than ours. Please don't complain if such picture gets declined :)
Mirkwood by WinterStag Princess Luna - night flight by zarielcharoitite - trees are just background here
Alvearia by AdelineMartin Spell Doctor by ianessom - no trees at all...

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

Grune Felder I by brunaschneemannMt. Lemmon 4 by Dynamoe , but accepted in the favourites.

The submission limit is three works per day.

Our gallery folders are:

The Shire by RobleskaZeppelin Chickadee Forest by Hanafae

The Light in my Darkness by woutartTree of Dawn by WestlyLaFleur

:iconceltic8plz: Literature - for poems and stories featuring trees
The Linden TreesThe trees of Linden, tall and green
      Stretch far and wide and whisper oft
           Of days of yore they once had seen
                When winding brook did murmur soft
                
                        To rest beneath their boughs so lean
                   And lie amongst their leafy loft
                            To sing to those who harken keen
     
The Ogham Lines - Part OneBeithe
The Year-Wheel turns and begins anew
Bright-white birch stands spindly and askew
Bone-bare trees awaiting to leaf
From death comes again the King from beneath
Betula
A beautiful maiden stands in forests fair
Grey is her skin, fine is her hair
Delicate eyebrows upon a finely-chiseled face
Draw down as you enter this once-sacred place
Birch
Silver and withering 'neath a tumultuous gale
Winter becomes Spring, with sleet and presumptuous hail;
Never does she quiver, never does she take
A form to be envied by all that she might make.
Luis
I grow, I shine, I stand upon the rock
Where a church may rise, where a conqueror may knock
And I drink in deep the air and smoke
The above calls here, where others have broke
Lus
Blazing, burning, intoxicating the air
Herbs in wood and water make every sight most fair
Dancing, entranced, the willworkers do fumble
Scrawling down visions described in delirium's mumble

Beads for berries, beads of blood
The hardiest men drip rivers that flood

The Source Of Life - Desktopography 2014 by Whendell A tree in the City by annewipf
Golden tree by megaossaAsymmetrical Symmetry by Raffyka - maybe - sometimes we make an exception from the "just photo with filters" rule, or just a simple digital effect, as it can create interesting abstract results. Depends on the quality of the picture if it gets accepted.
Autumns Fire by EstrudaBreakthrough by Anj3lla - digitally enhanced photo or photo with digital filters. Sometimes the authors themselves put the picture in "photogarphy" cathegory. Such "photography-photomanipulation" hybrids are accepted in the "Photomanipulation" folder of our sister group  Treephotographers - treephotographers.deviantart.c…

Sabawald Germany 01 by theogroen Tule tree 02 by Niaoblis
Untitled by RutiejA View From Beyond by Hluthvik - maybe - I accepted these for some reason, although it's not clear on the first sight if they are that big or old. I sometimes just hate clicking the "no" button, especially if the picture has been sitting between the submissions for a while... :) And it's hard to tell the size of a tree without a reference, so I tell myself that they might really be big...
Trees by EstrudaSun is a cannon ball by MirachRavaia , but again, it is accepted in the favourites, or in Treephotographers.

:iconceltic8plz: Art for Trees project - This gallery is for photos of YOU planting trees for this project fav.me/d4thax3 , and for the art created specifically as a reward for those who do. Often non-members submit to this gallery, because it's open for them as well. If the art is acceptable in any other folder, it will be accepted and moved there, if not, it will be declined.

"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


:iconceltic8plz: "non-members submit here" - as the title says. Again, this folder is open for non-members as well, because sometimes you paint just one picture of a tree and don't feel like joining a group because of it. Your tree is still welcome here :) But again, it must be an art that is acceptable in one of the regular group folders, where it will be moved soon.

:iconceltic8plz: News and Features - for journals about trees, or featuring pictures of trees. If you like to feature art, and make one about trees, you are welcome to submit there!

:iconceltic8plz: If you submit to a wrong folder, we will move it to the right one for you. However, try to submit to the right folder, you will spare us work!

Thank you for reading and understanding!

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:

I have the pleasure to introduce my new co-admin, :iconbrokenshell121: - BrokenShell121. In her own words:


I do love trees, in fact I' enjoy documenting peculiar local trees. I'm photographing and sometimes also drawing or using other media to emphasize a tree's character or 'spirit'. I like realism as much as I enjoy fantasy or surrealism. What else do you need to know about me? I'm an artist, trying to make a living on art and slowly but verily getting closer to succeeding at this. I hope to be able to spare enough time for the group.

Together, I hope we can again sustain the weekly features with voting for the best works this groups used to have, and so here is the first one:


:icontwc-noplz::icontwc-no2plz::icontwc-plz3::icontwc-plz3::icontwc-plz4::icontwc-plz5::icontwc-plz6:

This is a feature of our members' latest submissions, officially the 164th one.


Every member can nominate FIVE pictures from these into the featured folder! Just comment below with your choice in a form of a thumbnail or link (thumbnails work only for premium members). Three (sometimes 2 or 4) votes are needed for a picture to get featured in the next journal, depending on the number of votes.
