Man marries tree


A Peruvian man has married a tree for the second time in a bid to raise awareness about man-made environmental problems around the world.

Serial tree-hugger Richard Torres tied the knot in front of a small crowd at a national park in Bogota, Colombia.

After the symbolic ceremony, involving the placing of fruit offerings at the base of the tree, the environmental activist called for rebels from the Revolutionary Armed Forces to plant trees instead of starting war.

The actor also called for Colombians to care more their green surroundings and promised to keep spreading the message in other Latin America countries.

Torres married his first tree bride in Argentina in 2013.
