The Tree as a symbol of Man

A pomegranate tree symbolizes good deeds
“For a Man is as a tree of the field” (Deuteronomy). The spiritual significance of the tree is celebrated at the New Year for trees, Tu B’Shvat. Here we learn that the processes the farmer does for the tree to increase its produce, are all equally applicable to us in our inner work.
From a letter written by Rabbi Baruch Ashlag to his pupils.
