Since people refer to themselves as ENTS here this may be of interest.

The comments say this door was seen by Tolkien and the inspiration for the Moria gate.

"Is it time for another old door? Yeah! I know we love 'em.
Here we have two yew trees growing either side of the north door of the medieval St. Edward’s Church in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire, England.
Brought to us by Robert Macfarlane and photographer Steve Taylor ARPS/Alamy."
We travel the Milky way together, trees and men. - John Muir
