For the eighth time, Peruvian actor and environmental activist Ricardo Torres has symbolically married a tree as part of an ecological awareness campaign to urge others to care for the environment.
The wedding took place at a landmark location, the town of Santa Maria del Tule, which is home to an ancient 2000-year-old cypress tree. The tree's estimated weight is more than 544.3 million kilograms.
Torres left the house of his godmother, accompanied by a committee of village elders, friends and family, and walked down the Sabino street towards a cluster of Cypress tree leaves to start with the ritual procession.
Torres placed a ring on one of the tree's branches and kissed it as guests threw rice at the "newly wed" couple.
At the end of the ceremony, he threw a bouquet at the wedding attendees.

The happy couple is registered at Lumber Barn.
Has he divorced the previous seven trees? Or is guilty of polygatree?
This is the 8th tree he’s married. I hope they all have good lawyers, charge him with bigamy and make him pay child support for all their saplings for the next 100 years.
“I think that I shall never see....”
Did he get a woodie on the honeymoon?
Yes, he had a woodie for some ash.
Come on folks, this is kinda sappy . . . .

Now we learn what knotholes are for?
Does New York have a gender for his wife to identify as? Or do they need to add a 32nd gender?
The tree-hugger groom is likely to find his tree bride’s knot hole, is wholly unsatisfying.
I don’t think this wedding was consensual. The bride seemed rather wooden at the ceremony.
Had the tree given its consent?
And what gender was the tree?
Inquiring minds want to know.
So throughout the day, the tree gets wood?
I figured if Sr. Dendrosexual married a tree, at least he wouldn't be crossing the border any time soon, but it sounds like he's the "love 'em and leave 'em" type.
Did the tree give knowing consent to this union?
I sense that the Ents are about to rise up at this outrage.
I knew this thread would be funny. Thanks for posting. I married a Buckeye.
Did the tree say “yes”?????????????
