Celtic Tree List

Celtic Tree List – Did it ever exist?

We just had a customer in looking for a Celtic tree list so she could buy the relevant tree for a loved ones’ birthday month so we thought it might be useful to share the list here for anyone interested in this rather sweet idea.

Whilst “there is no evidence that the Celts ever named their months after trees” (ref: http://www.maryjones.us/jce/celtictreecalendar.html) here is the list for those of you interested in following this idea.

  •    Beth (Birch) December 24 to January 20
  •     Luis (Rowan) January 21 to February 17
  •     Nion (Ash) February 18 to March 17
  •     Fearn (Alder) March 18 to April 14
  •     Saille (Willow) April 15 to May 12
  •     Uath (Hawthorn) May 13 to June 9
  •     Duir (Oak) June 10 to July 7
  •     Tinne (Holly) July 8 to August 4
  •     Coll (Hazel) August 5 to September 1
  •     Muin (Vine) September 2 to September 29
  •     Gort (Ivy) September 30 to October 27
  •     Ngetal (Reed) October 28 to November 24
  •     Ruis (Elder) November 25 to December 22
  •     December 23 is not ruled by any tree for it is the traditional day of the proverbial “Year and a Day” in the earliest courts of law.
