Trees are important in many a folk and fairy tale where the action often takes place deep in a forest or wood. The tree below is in my front yard, but I can imagine the shy woodlock from my story, THE WOODLOCK, scrambling up a similar tree trunk in the Woods Beyond the Wood of her home.
And the tree below in a park I visit from time to time? It’s a perfect fairy tale tree. I can almost see the steps in its hollow trunk leading down to a wonderland.
