Man Marries Tree in Mexico to Raise Eco-Awareness

Ricardo Torres, a Peruvian actor and activist, married a tree to raise awareness about the environment in Mexico (AJ+)

For an 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 in Mexico, which is home to an ancient 2,000-year-old cypress tree. The tree’s estimated weight is more than 600,000 tons.

...According to the actor, this ritual is not just a performance because there is a commitment to plant and care for the environment. “This wedding with the Cypress tree is the symbol of this campaign [called] ‘Marry a tree, Mexico.’ Save your oxygen. My brothers, I ask you to plant a tree. To look after your nature, your mountain, your river, your water, your food,” Torres said.

At the end of the ceremony, Torres threw a bouquet at the wedding attendees. Torres added that for his honeymoon he would plant a “macuil” tree to reaffirm his ‘green’ commitment and to wish for world peace.

He also intends to plant dozens of trees in various parts of Mexico accompanied by children to inspire and educate.
