Folklore of the Trees

We will be starting a new series swap this year. The focus will be on the Trees of England. Each swap will focus on a different Tree and introduce The Folklore of the Tree. (Information taken from www.discoverwildlife.com)

We will start you off with some basic information and once you are partnered you will send your partner something for their journal.

  • 1) A drawing, a painting, a photo or digital picture. It can focus on the leaves, the bark, or the entire tree.

  • 2) Include a short note from your character to theirs; to include something you’ve learned about the tree (fun fact) or a personal story including the theme tree.

  • 3) Decorate the envelope so the receiver will know it’s for the Folklore of the Trees swap.

For this first swap we’ll focus on:

The Ash Tree (Fraxinus excelsior) Ash trees were thought to have healing properties, especially for children. Newborn babies would be given a spoonful of ash sap and sick children would be passed through the cleft of a tree or sapling in the hope that it might cure them.

We hope you enjoy this new series! Please comment below if you have any questions or concerns.
