Woodlands and trees were very important to the Celts.
The Celtic alphabet was based on trees. It is called 'Ogham'. The letters of this alphabet were linked to the names of trees.
Trees were protected during Celtic times. The Celts believed trees had different powers.
Below is a picture of the Ogham alphabet.
