A period of writing on wood or other perishable material prior to the preserved monumental inscriptions.

Each tree was linked to various gods and goddesses who represented various human idylls and were thought to dwell within these sacred trees. They also believed that the Sun bestowed certain attributes on each tree. (Western Astrology operates much the same way, associating various constellations with planetary principles and personality types.)
