Green has always stood for vegetation, nature, and growing (deep green in astrology relates to Taurus, ruled by Venus). Green reminds us of spring; only a “poison” green is ugly. When the green color in the dream is stark, it refers to overwhelming emotions (is hope all you have in your life?). Green is the color of sensitivity. Dreaming about this color frequently means that we need to pay attention to a more natural lifestyle.

Green means go. Green is the color of the heart center, which can be confusing due to the representation of the heart as red, made especially prominent in Western culture with Valentine’s Day. However, green is the central color of the spectrum, and the heart is considered the center of both our physical and emotional bodies. This connects the color green to love, healing, and all matters of the heart. It may be easier to understand the meaning of this color if you consider the earth and Mother Nature’s love affair with the color green. Keeping with traffic-signal analogies, if you go when the light is green, that is like following your heart’s desire to move forward. When the heart is soured by hurt, green can turn into the menace of envy.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
Green is the color of nature. It is also the color of other forms of growth and flourishing development.
If green appears in your dream, are you experiencing new growth? On the positive side, green is linked to feelings of calm and hope, but on the negative side it is associated with jealousy. Green is the color displayed by growing and healthy vegetation and foliage, and it quite clearly indicates natural growth or the mental relaxation gained from being close to nature. So if you were surrounded by lush green vegetation in your dream, could your unconscious have been urging you to pay more attention to the environment around you, or to become more environmentally friendly?
Consider, too, the other associations that are often made with this color; could your unconscious be telling you that your approach is naïve, immature or green? Could you do with an injection of freshness and hope in your life? Or have you become a victim of the green-eyed monster: jealousy?
If darker shades of green appear in relation to a certain person, is it because you are jealous or envious of them or something of theirs? Dark green also tends to indicate cheating, deceit and selfishness. Muddier shades of dark green sometimes point to envy and greed, as well as a stubborn or self- opinionated attitude. Alternatively, have you been given the green light to go ahead with some business or family venture? A green field could indicate inner feelings of calm. Green fruits may suggest that a current project is not quite ripe and that patience is needed until the time is right to begin. Green vegetables could also be associated with the idea of personal health or growth. Green eyes have traditionally been linked to feelings of jealousy. Were the eyes your own or someone else’s? A green path may be linked to a physical or emotional journey.
Lighter shades of green tending towards blue represent healing. This color is also representative of money. Keywords: positive change, growth, healing, vitality, serenity, money, wealth and jealousy.... The Element Encyclopedia

The tree depicts the living structure of our inner self. Its roots show our connection with our physical body and the earth, its trunk the way we direct the energies of our being— growth, sex, thought, emotion.
The branches are the abilities, directions and many facets we develop in life—varied and yet all connected in the common life process of our being.
The tree can also symbolise new growth, stages of life and death, with its spring leaves and blossom, then the falling leaves.
The top of the tree, or the ends of the branches, are our aspirations, the growing vulnerable tip of our personal growth and spiritual realisation.
The leaves may represent our personal life which may fall off the tree of life (die) but what gave it life continues to exist.
The tree is our whole life, the evolutionary urge which pushes us into being and growth. It depicts the force or process which is behind all other life forms —but seen as it expresses in our personal existence.
In some old manuscripts pictures show a man lying on the ground and his penis growing into a tree, with fruits, birds, and perhaps people in its protective shade. This illustrates how one’s personal life energy can branch out from its source in the basic drives, and become creativity, fruitfulness, some- thing given to others.
The tree can also represent the spine, and the different levels of human experience—physical, sensual, sexual, hungers, emotions, relatedness, communication, thought, awareness.
Example: ‘I was about eight years old when I had this dream. In it I was sitting in a large garden. I believe there was a big house nearby which was our family house—not our real house. With me were other members of my family, and there was a baby boy too. Nearby was a laige tree. We climbed this tree, the baby as well, to see what was at the top.
The baby fell out of the tree. We climbed down and took the baby to a room and lay it on a bed. It seemed to be asleep and didn’t wake up. Later we went back to the room to see the baby but it had gone. In its place was a bluebird. As we looked the bluebird flew away’ (told to author on LBC radio programme).
The tree in this dream depicts the child’s sense of her life as it might develop or grow in the future. Climbing it shows her exploring what it might be like to grow up. At about eight most children unconsciously develop a philosophy which enables them to meet the difficulties of meeting the growth of self awareness, which includes the knowledge of death at the end of life.
The dreamer looks at this by having the baby fall out of the tree. Death is seen as the bluebird which flies away.
Example: ‘I flew low over small trees which were just coming into leaf. They had beautiful soft green leaves. I knew it was autumn and the leaves were only just coming out because it had been a cloudy, overcast summer. I felt the leaves would have time to mature because the sun would be out in the autumn, and the trees would not die’ (Colin C). Colin dreamt this in his early 50s, at a time when he felt frustrated by not being able to achieve a regular source of income or, more important, feel satisfied with what he had achieved in life.
The flying shows him taking an overview of his situation.
The poor summer is his feelings that the years of his life which should have been most productive had been poor—literally, the sun had not shone on his endeavours. But he feels encouraged because he senses that his personal ‘summer’ is still to come, and his many endeavours—the trees—would not prove unproductive.
A wood, collection of trees: the natural forces in one’s own being, therefore one’s connection with or awareness of the unconscious, other people’s personal growth and connection with self. Dead tree: past way of life; something which was full of life for you in the past, but is now dead; dead relative. Falling tree: sense of threat to one’s identity, loss of relative. Christmas tree, other evergreen: the eternal aspect of our transitory experience. Human, animal hung on tree: personal sacrifice; the death of some part of self so further growth can occur—death of dependence so independence can arise; the pains and struggles, the sense of crucifixion occurring in the maturing process. Oak: strength, masculinity. Flowering tree: fertility, femininity. Idioms: top of the tree; family tree; bark up the wrong tree.

Linking the earth with the heavens, the tree is an archetypal symbol that can represent cosmic unity; in dreams, however, it generally refers to your spiritual and emotional growth.
The tree’s roots draw on the depths of the unconscious, the trunk is the solid body and the branches reach to the enlightenment of heaven. According to Jung the tree is ’a symbol of the self…depicted in the process of growth’.
If this interpretation is used, dreams about trees can be seen to be symbolic of the basic structure of your inner life, telling you a great deal about yourself and your personal growth. Because each element of the tree’s structure also denotes aspects of you, your life, your past, your present and even your future, when one appears in your dreams it is best to work with the image fairly extensively. The shape of the tree and the condition of its roots, trunk, branches, leaves and fruit all send important messages, as does the landscape in which the tree is growing. And if you dreamed of a particular species of tree, understanding its symbolic associations will further aid your interpretation and your self-knowledge.
