Eadha (Aspen) The aspen’s Greek name Aspis, means shield and amongst the Celts its lightweight wood was indeed favoured for making shields. These shields were more than mere physical barriers between warrior and enemy; they were imbued with additional magical, protective qualities to shield the bearer from psychic as well as physical harm. The magically protective nature of the “shield tree” extended to the general population too and, like the rowan tree, was a popular choice of a tree to plant close to a dwelling; buried treasures were also said to be protected by aspens.
