bark from (Old English):
Dogs have always barked, so it is not surprising that bark is a prehistoric word. If someone's bark is worse than their bite they are not as ferocious as they appear. To bark at the moon meaning ‘to make a fuss with no effect’, is first recorded in the 17th century. To bark up the wrong tree is from 19th-century America. People have been barking or barking mad since the 1930s. The bark of a tree is possibly related to the name of the birch tree (Old English). Bark or barque (Middle English) is also an old-fashioned word for a boat from Latin barca ‘ship's boat’, from which we get embark (mid 16th century).
