Balsam Poplar or Cottonwood is one of the most sacred trees in Native American plant lore. Many tribes regard them as a kind of spirit conductor, which conveys messages of the spirit world through their rustling leaves. Sacred objects, like the Hopi Kachinas, were fashioned from Cottonwood. Cottonwoods were associated with fertility. Cottonwood is not a European tree, but indigenous species of Poplar also played role in folk magic, albeit a minor one. In European plant lore poplars are considered protective, especially against lightening and against snakes.
