ABSTRACT



In the paper examples of trees bound with objects of religious cult, found in Polish country landscape, are presented. In the first chapter trees situated near chapels, wayside-shrines or crosses are described; chapels are often surrounded by symmetrically planted groups of trees. The next chapter concerns trees found near village churches. Mostly they are reminders of former cemeteries, which due to urbanization progress are no more used.

Trees bound with religious cult such as limes, maples and acacias are an important feature in Polish country landscape.

Key words: chapels, churches, country landscape, trees..
