Insane damaging of Trees

Look closely to the picture…In several wooded areas around the UK passerby have been stopping for many years to hammer small coins into trees for whatever insane person reason…The practice might date back to the early 1700s on Scotland were ill people stuck florins into trees with the idea that the tree woukd take away their sickness. .

 

 

How unconscious is that? We are one and our lives depend on trees…We should treat them with more respect.Damaging the skin of a tree has the same effect than damaging the skin of a human or animal..Bacteria, fungi and viruses can get in and make the tree sick or destroy it.
