all spirits are one and the same so i imagine the tree spirits are like our spirits,ive never imagined human souls to look human or tree spirits look like trees,the soul or spirit is more subtle than form
its not how u respect

I think tree spirits may be of two things. It could be the life force of the tree itself, the trees living essence or maybe a tree guardian. Possibly an angel or other spirit. I believe trees are the voices of Dana, our Earth Mother, so they have to have a spirit or life force and be spiritual to speak to us, and we have to learn to be quiet and listen. As far as a literal form that spirit may take, I don't know. If it is an angel guardian or messenger it may take human form but I feel that tree spirits are generally without form. They are something you feel and do not see. Like people, trees have a soul and may have a guardian ( Angel or Spirit Guide ) as well.

There are more to trees than meet the eye. I feel it every time I enter the forest.
