The alder is generally found near streams, rivers and wetlands. It is known for creating a lush environment for surrounding animal and plant life. Druids believed the alder tree symbolised a balance between male and female. It is also associated with courage and the evolving spirit.
In Irish mythology the first human man was made from the alder tree, a tree of the fairies, protected by the water fairy-folk but also representing fire and earth. In old Ireland it was considered a crime to cut down an alder tree because it would anger the tree spirit. When felled, the wood of the alder turns from white to blood red.
