We are preparing material for a course on plants in society. An aspect
of the course is an examination of the role that certain trees
(individual
specimens, not forests) have played in the myths and legends of
society or groups of people. Some trees may be significant due to their
association with some historic event, or there may be certain legends or
stories attached to them. Is anyone aware of any individual
mythical/legendary trees, anywhere around the world? If so, please let
me know,including details of where the tree is to be found and why it is
significant.

Many thanks
Mike
