Tree Profiles


Sceach Gheal

Also known as “whitethorn” or “May tree”, hawthorn comes into bloom with beautiful white flowers in early summer and has an abundance of red berries in autumn. The hawthorn is considered a magical tree that’s connected to the fairies, and superstition warns that it is bad luck to cut it down. It often grows in harsh conditions and this gives the hawthorn’s trunk its distinct gnarled and twisted look.
