Reeds (nGeatal) were very useful in Celt society. They were woven to make water tight roofing (lasting as long as 10 years), laid down as mats, used as candles, and so forth. The read was associated with protection and harmony.
It may seem odd to think of reeds as trees but, as noted elsewhere, Celts treated any plant with a woody stalk as a tree. Reeds were also larger in those days than they are now.

This symbol has no direct single letter counterpart in the English alphabet. In Ogham script it represents nGeatal (NG) or reed.
