Trees play an integral role in Middle-earth in various ways, and I’m fascinated by Tolkien’s term ‘Ent’, which is found to be derived from the Old English term for ‘Giant’ and conjures the specific mystical vision of trees taking human form. This vision is used to such a visually striking effect in the character Fangorn or Treebeard, who resides in the equally mystical Fangorn Forest in The Two Towers. - The dreams of trees unfold, by John Cockshaw
