Psalm 29: Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones, give unto the Lord glory and strength. 2 Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders; the Lord is over many waters. 4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars, Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon. 6 He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox. 7 The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire.
9 The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth, and strips the forests bare; and in His temple everyone says, “Glory!” 8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
10 The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, and the Lord sits as King forever. 11 The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.
29:5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars, Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.

THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” Gen. 2:16-17

Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb. Acts 13:29 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” Galatians 3:13
THE TREE IN THE NEW JERUSALEM And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Rev.22:1-2
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. Revelation 22:14
