Breakdown

The trees are metaphorical (Revelation 22:1-2). They refer to the formation of the heavens, the stars, etc. E.g. Issachar was well-versed in studying the stars (1 Chronicles 12:32). The tree of life represents the knowledge of righteousness, whereas the tree of knowledge of good and evil represents both good and evil (Sirach 17:7)
