“A special connection between humans and trees has been evident throughout human history. In addition to providing needs such as food, shelter, healing, and protection, trees have also played an essential part in the spirituality of various groups of people and religions.
The tree of life is a fundamental widespread mytheme or archetype in many of the world’s mythologies, religious and philosophical traditions. This includes the Tree of Knowledge and Tree of Life in the Bible, the Tree of Immortality in the Quran, the Assyrian Tree of Life in Ancient Mesopotamia, and the Bo or Bodhi Tree in Buddhism.
Ancient people in Greece, Persia, and other regions commonly used the world tree motif symbol, which portrays the roots of a tree wrapped around Earth with its branches in the heavens. This symbol represents a tree which supports the heavens and connecting the heavens to the terrestrial world, and, through its roots, the underworld.
Specific world trees include égig érő fa in Hungarian mythology, Ağaç Ana in Turkic mythology, Modun in Mongol mythology, Yggdrasil in Norse mythology, Irminsul in Germanic mythology, the oak in Slavic, Finnish and Baltic, Iroko in Yoruba religion, Jianmu in Chinese mythology, and in Hindu mythology the Ashvattha (a Ficus religiosa).“

Yggdrasill, Old Norse Mimameidr, in Norse mythology, the world tree, a giant ash supporting the universe. One of its roots extended into Niflheim, the underworld; another into Jötunheim, land of the giants; and the third into Asgard, home of the gods.
