Do Tree Spirits Cry When A Tree Is Cut Down? – by Tana Hoy

One of the memories I will never get out of my head happened when I was in junior high. I was walking along the road when I heard a loud, mechanical noise.

Tree Spirits

Tree Spirits

Looking for its source, I found a group of men, and one of them was operating a chainsaw.

They were cutting one of the oldest trees in our neighborhood down. As the machine came in contact with the bark of the tree, I felt this immense sense of pain and sadness come over me.

My clairvoyance and clairaudience was going crazy! I was very young, so part of me did not fully understand what it was. Years later, I discovered that the feeling I felt then, came from the very tree those men were cutting. I was hearing the cries and screams of the tree as they were cutting it down.

What Are Tree Spirits?

Spirits of the trees live in the tree itself. Every tree has a spirit, and they come in all forms and shapes. Think of the trees in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. The Ents in the story very closely resemble real tree spirits. As spirits, tree spirits are extremely wise, as a result of their age and nature.

Being literally rooted to the ground, tree spirits are fully in tune with the spirits of the Earth. As such, they have access to the core of the planet’s energies. A lot of people and civilizations hundreds of years ago have recognized the wisdom of the trees.

As I’ve mentioned, tree spirits come in all forms and sizes, depending on how old the tree is. Some trees in Japan and in the Amazon rainforest have been alive for thousands of years. I can just imagine what wisdom the spirits in those trees hold, being alive since the dawn of our existence.

What Happens When A Tree Is Cut Down?

Tree spirits however, are not immortal. They are created just like people. The only difference between man and tree spirits is the fact that they exist in the spiritual world, while we exist in the physical world. However, tree spirits are connected to the physical plane as well, since their existence is fully connected to physical trees.

This means that when a tree gets cut, the spirit in it suffers greatly, and it may even die. As a psychic who is greatly attuned to nature spirits, this breaks my heart, since thousands of trees get cut without regard every day.

I can only hope that man will start looking at nature, and all the things living in it, as living, breathing organisms. After all, without them, there would be no you or me.

    As I pull into my place of residence I always just sit and notice the trees. But, the most trouble I feel and seeing new homes being build and the trees they destroy to build them. It’s so bad that the deers and other animals makes their make to the streets and highways you would never see them at. Thank you, for this piece it makes a lot of sense now.

    Dear Tana, Thank you for this. I have thought I was loosing my mind. I have to have a tree cut from my property today. One of its branches is dead and is a great danger to my house. Part of the tree is still alive, but not salvageable. I have been absolutely devastated. I feel like I am losing a dear friend. Your article makes me feel like I’m not insane to feel this way. What can I do for this “friend” that has to move on??? I am going out to talk with the tree right now. So sad. Thanks for any response. Blessings, Sandy
