The Rowan tree is the Celtic 'Tree of Life'. Rowan Trees or Mountain Ash as they are also known are said to protect from negative enchantment and in ancient times crosses made from the wood from Rowan trees were often hung over the entrance to homes. It was thought that a keeping a branch from the Rowan tree in the home on Good Friday would counteract any negative energies and ward off evil forces.
In Scotland, berries from Rowan trees are still used to make wine and also jam which is traditionally eaten with game.

Customer Reviews

Very Pleased Review by Charlotte Swann
I ordered this Rowan Tree for my mum's 50th birthday. As I currently live abroad I was looking for a gift that I could organize easily and feel content that it would arrive. My mum was very happy with the tree and the only issue I would report would be that I had requested delivery for Friday 15th August and it didn't actually arrive until Monday HOWEVER- as my parents live on the outer Hebrides I think treetomydoor did well enough ;) (Posted on 19/08/2014)

Delighted Review by Rowan Mann
This was a gift for my mother and she was absolutely delighted with it. (Posted on 10/06/2013)
Thank you for the pleasure it has given us both. Review by JC

I ordered a rowan tree from you for my sister’s 60th birthday four years ago, which she loved. It was so small when it came that we said that it was more like a twiglet than a baby tree. It was in a large pot in my garden for two years as my sister was moving between bases. It is now a strapping, beautiful tree but is still affectionately referred to as Twiglet. It now resides in France with my sister. Thank you for the pleasure it has given us both. (Posted on 23/04/2013)
