Tree Spirit “Cliona”
A Tree Spirit is a nature deity related to a tree and acting as its guardian. Such deities are present in many cultures. Although often portrayed as female, Tree Spirits can be either male or female and are usually connected to ancient fertility lore and tree worship. The status of tree deities varies from that of a local fairy, ghost, sprite or nymph, to that of a god or goddess. The name “Cliona” means “shapely” or beautiful in old Irish. She is the female counterpart to the male Tree Spirit Crann
