Hi everyone,
I have been thinking about making my own wand, I am very drawn to Willow, always have been.  Now, to obtain a suitable piece of willow I understand first I must seek the trees permission and always thank the tree for letting me take the wood, but do I have to take a piece from the ground which has already fallen or is it ok for me to take it from one of the trees branches?

Once I have got the wood for my wand do I have to do anything in particular with it to make it a wand or can I use it as it is?

Thanks

SW
Well I have an interesting story to tell.  I got my willow wand from my favorite willow tree in this park I like to go to not too far from where I live now.  I was very poor at the time and I only had a bunch of change in my pocket.  I took the dead branch from the tree and humbly thanked the tree out loud and I offered up what little change I had left for the tree as an offering because that was all I had to give at the time.  I did it a little begrudgingly because it was the last of my money and I wanted to get something to eat but I knew that the world would pay me back.  A few weeks later some magic money came my way and I was able to pay off some bills.  And what I mean by that is money that I wasn't expecting to come from places that I didn't ask for and it was a gift from the Gods, at least that is how I took it and I was able to pay bills as I said.  Just in time for when I needed it the most!
