Trees are significant in many of the world's mythologies, and have been given deep and sacred meanings throughout the ages. Human beings, observing the growth and death of trees, and the annual death and revival of their foliage, have often seen them as powerful symbols of growth, death and rebirth. Evergreen trees, which largely stay green throughout these cycles, are sometimes considered symbols of the eternal, immortality or fertility.

The tree of life, with sacred animals feeding on fruit-bearing branches, is a common image in the art of the ancient Near East

Forests play a prominent role in many folktales and legends. In these dark, mysterious places, heroes can lose their way, face unexpected challenges, and stumble on hidden secrets. In myths and legends from around the world, trees appear as ladders between worlds, as sources of life and wisdom, and as the physical forms of supernatural beings. The tree of life, with sacred animals feeding on fruit-bearing branches, is a common image in the art of the ancient Near East.

Shropshire, as Andrew Morton points out, is particularly well endowed with old or otherwise remarkable trees, many of them situated in places one might best describe as a little off the "beaten track". What this book attempts to do is to look at individual trees in Shropshire; trees that have become unique either because of their size, or their age, or because of their history and legends associated with them.
