Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Rome she casts her shadow - oak-ash-thorn
"So, at this point at least, unless I find anything else² to indicate it predates Kipling, it looks like the idea of oak, ash, and thorn as a ‘fairy triad’ is a modern concept."

That is from https://www.patheos.com/blogs/agora/2016/05/irish-american-witchcraft-oak-ash-and-thorn-the-evolution-of-belief/ and it's a five minute read, but worth it.
