I think it is important to keep in that no Tree is an objective reality but, like anything else, reflects the views and beliefs of whoever created it. Isaac Luria, for example, operated under the assumptions of his faith about which some things were unqueestionable. His Tree operates best when viewed under the lens of Jewish dogma, and not necessarily for Hermetic or magickal practices. He was also influenced by the collective trauma of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain only forty years earlier.

Other Kabbalists have also been influenced, obviously, by their contemporary experiences. I myself do prefer the Kircher Tree because it works for my purposes (whatever those are) and is the basis I use when looking at other Trees.
