Material aspects: Dreaming of wood, in the sense of prepared timber, suggests our ability to appreciate the past and to build on what has gone before. We are capable of building a structure, which may or may not be permanent. Dreaming of a wooden toy highlights our connection with the more natural side of ourselves.

Depth Psychology: Wood is a symbol of the habits, opinions, and ideas that you have been raised with; they are a part of your personality.
A dream about wood is a challenge: think critically about your traits (or they will become “petrified”). Begin now building a new life (like building new furniture from old wood). Is the wood in the dream still green or dried and knotty? Is the wood already decaying”? If it is—it is high time to start building something new!
Symbol for mobility, warmth, and naturalness. Important is the condition and type of wood; for example, Firewood and Ebony.
In the I Ching, wood means gentleness, that which penetrates, like the wind, and it is related to the first daughter.
According to Freud, wood is a symbol for femininity. However, in the Tarot, wood corresponds to the wand which—according to traditional as well as modern interpretation—is connected to masculinity. This is an example of how contradictory meanings can be in the symbolism of depth psychology. At a certain level of consciousness, the difference between masculinity and femininity loses its importance. This higher level of consciousness is mirrored in everyday life where some symbols can be seen as typically feminine as well as masculine, in accordance with the present state of consciousness of the dreamer.
Folklore: Bad omen.
A dream that features wood is very lucky, representing good health and renewal. Also see “Log.”
Dreams of wood signify your potential, raw talents and inner resources to create, build, and manifest your visions into reality. Wood can also represent the absence of emotion, that you are shock or trying to be invulnerable to pain or heartache. Consider the feeling tone of this dream to discern the meaning for you.
