Alder: Nurturing | Giving | Protection | Music---- back to tree list The ancient Celts believed the Alder tree symbolised giving and nurturing, due to the alder tree providing nutrients to the soil, much more than any other tree. The alder can successfully restore poor soil back to a healthy state, whilst similarly, when the leaves decompose in water it provides nutrients to the aquatic animals living there. The Alder tree roots were often noted as providing shelter for many fish, and legend also mentions the Alder tree being used to create wind instruments like whistles and flutes.
