Trees in the Scriptures

Is there any significance to God using trees in the scriptures? For example, the tree in Lehi's dream and the two trees in the Garden of Eden.

Also, Adam and Eve were not forbidden to partake of the Tree of Life until after they partook of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Had they partaken of the Tree of Life before that? Is the Tree of Life a symbol and not an actual tree, much as in Lehi's vision?
