A tree calendar that follows the Beth-Luis-Nuin, the Celtic tree calendar. Here is one interpretation of the dates for the months for a year

Dec 23rd is unruled by a tree

Beth

Birch

December to January next year

This is just one of several possible schemes. It does seem that there is much disagreement about exact dates. I tend to the idea that the tree month should end with the new moon, and Samhain falls on the new moon nearest the mid-point between the autumn equinox and Yule (winter solstice). This is just a personal opinion, however.

I shall make available tree information that I have from time to time as part of my ovate studies with OBOD. The menu bars will take you to the tree pages.
