Thank you Dowrgi. Regarding the burning of the trees, is there something in Brehon law which specifies which trees are allowed to be burned and which not? Maybe there is something in there which might explain some of our beliefs and customs? Regarding tree lore, we know that the Battle of Cad Goddeu medieval poem describes several trees in a similar way; maybe there is a reason to do a comparison between that poem and the Silva Gadelica? And excuse me for pointing this out, but that reference looks awfully familiar – I am sure that the Silva Gadelica is within the Order’s reference texts, I am sure I remember seeing this title in there.
