The way the trunk grows from a seed and then branches off into smaller branches and then into twigs is a symbol of life and how it progresses.

The tree also symbolizes connection. A tree’s roots are connected to the soil, the trunk is connected to branches and the branches reach up to the sky. The tree is connected to both mother earth and the energy of the sun. This can be said for life to. We are connected to the world around use and need other people to thrive.

Trees can also be used as a symbol of how we grow as people. Trees begin the same and grow. However, events such as storms can whither the trees. The same can be said for people. We start out the same and different experiences make us grow into different people. Like the tree we hold on to what makes us strong through stormy times.
