Trees are worshipped in India since Vedic times as they provide us shelter, food, fuel, and oxygen for living. In the Rigveda and the Atharveda some trees are deifined as "Vriksha Devta" which are considered to be holy and the people ought to worship them. The Pipal, Banyan, Goolar, Amla, Vilva, Sandal, Neem, Mango, and Babool are some of the trees that are worshipped in India.

Vaastu has specified several trees to be kept in the compound. But big trees should not be planted in the Northeast, North or East. Big and healthy trees are good sources of bioplasmic energy. We can get energized by resting and doing deep breathing under big trees. Lord Buddha attained salvation under a Pipal tree which is known as the Boddhi Vriksha.

Married Hindu ladies worship the Banyan tree for a long and happy married life.

Lord Shiva patronizes the Vilva (Wood apple or Bel) tree as the only tree, which has three, leaves that sprout together like a trident. The juice of the leaves is a medicine for Diabetics, and the pulp of the fruit is supposed to stop diarrhea. It is said that the Bel fruit was a favorite of Lord Shiva. The Asoka tree is known to relieve the worries of the persons sitting under its shade. Sita is said to have been seated under an Asoka tree in Lanka during her captivity.

The Hindus also worship the Kadam tree, because Shree Krishna used to sit and play under this tree. We know about the ayurvedic properties of Amla. Rishi Chyavan patronized the Amla tree for rejuvenating properties.

The Tulsi or basil plant has a special mention in vaastu. According to scientists, the place containing tulsi plant becomes pollution free. The oil of the leaves is capable of destroying bacteria and insects. The leaves have mercury traces and are used in Ayurveda for cancer. The juice of the leaves cures bronchitis and stomach problems. Tulsi leaves' juice is good for all skin diseases and it is commonly used with honey and ginger for cough and common cold. Dried branches of the tulsi plant are used as puja items.
