I am a Tree-Hugger by nature and as science is fining--trees are oozing positive waves to us humans nearby. Forest Bathing is now "en vogue" Trees can enchant us or create mysteries i.e. Christmas trees! 

They may also inspire a sense of mystery in some depictions with color variation that enhance mood and movement, such as dancing trees!
