The alder tree, a symbol of strength and battle, shows that you will win a battle. In Celtic mythology, the alder tree was symbolic of a balance between female and male principles since it possesses both female and male catkins on the same branch.The druids also associated the tree with courage and the evolving spirit, and linked it with death and resurrection. This belief was shared in Austria too, where the wood of the alder was thought to make the dead come back to life. In Irish mythology the first human man was made from the alder tree.
