In Norse mythology Yggdrasil is the world tree. Yggdrasil is evergreen, it has branches that stretch over all the world and it has roots that go all the way down to the deepest places. Many mysterious things make Yggdrasil their home. Opinion is divided on whether Yggdrasil is supposed to be an ash or a yew

The colour is a rich woodland green a little on the cold side inspired by the pines of a yewtree

An ash I know,

Yggdrasil its name,

With water white

is the great tree wet;

Thence come the dews

that fall in the dales,

Green by Urth's well

does it ever grow.
