Myrtle Tree Press

growing in the Spirit

"Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir-tree; and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle-tree: and it shall be to Jehovah for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off."  (Isaiah 55:13)

Myrtle Trees, which literally mean "sweetness",  are symbolic of the life principle.  They represent all that is regenerative and restorative.  They are slow growers and live a long time.  In fact, it actually takes 100-150 years for them to reach their potential.

Myrtle trees are so beautifully shaped and well contained that they actually do not need pruning.  Because of the fragrance, presentation, preservation, and endurance, they are a symbol of victory.

In 1933, money actually grew on myrtle trees.  A city council in North Bend, Oregon approved an Ordinance #653, which authorized the issuance of $1,000 worth of myrtlewood discs or emergency money to be used for salaries and bills! 

This seed amount grew in a multitude of ways as the tokens were supposed to be redeemed that year, but the Myrtle tree coins stayed in circulation for years afterwards.  In fact, even until recently, it is said that the coins were cashed at local banks.  No one lost money, and the city prospered all the more.

In the Bible, angels and prophets stand among the Myrtle trees (see, e.g., Zechariah 1).  They depict a divine connection with Spirit and an energy of redemption, renewal, and revelation.  So does Myrtle Tree Press.
