Celtic tree calendar
Symbolism: The alder is the fire tree. Once this wood is cut, it turns to red. Besides, from its wood, one of the best coal can be extracted. It is linked to Bran, the giant who supports his troops out of water (Bran means crow in brittonic). With this wood also, carpenters made imputrescible piles (Venice and Ravenne are built on structures made of alder). The alder is regarded as the sun of spring which drains the floods of the fourth month.
