The goddess Hekate (or Hecate) is a goddess in ancient Greek religion and mythology depicted as three-formed or triple-bodied enabling her to see in all directions. She is associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, night, light, magic, witchcraft, the Moon, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, graves, ghosts, necromancy, and sorcery. She is also worshipped as a protector of households. It is said that you know she is present when the dogs begin to howl and bark. You can read more about her here: mythopedia.com/topics/hecate
I've stumbled across three threes so far that have triple trunks, fused together at their base but separating into three trunks as they grew. I've named them Hekatrees in honor of the goddess. 🌳🌳🌳
