We shouldn't name a tree, especially not by a human name.
A tree doesn't care what name you give it, it only cares about the energy you exchange with it.
You can call it whatever you want, all I'm saying is: this naming of the tree is a thing you do for yourselves, not for it.
A tree is not a pet and you do not own naming rights on it. You shouldn't try to name something that doesn't belong to you, because it will be meaningless.
A tree already has a name, an ancient name, certainly not chosen by a mere mortal.
You can call it whatever you want though, it's the curse of man kind, always needing to label everything down.
I'm not saying you shouldn't name it after all, if a word will make it easier for you to channel love towards it.
But no matter what you call it, that tree will never actually be Bob or Dave or anything like any Bob or Dave on this earth.
Name it Bob if you will, but just because you named it that, don't expect the tree's name to actually be Bob.
