Environmental Activist Marries 1,000 YEAR OLD TREE
Guest post by Aleister
An environmental activist took his dedication to a whole new level recently by marrying a 1,000 year old tree in Mexico.
This probably makes sense to progressives.
Peruvian activist and actor Richard Torres recently contracted matrimony with Mexico’s famous 1,000-year-old Arbol del Tule, or Tule Tree, in an Inca ceremony.
It was a lovely celebration.

Environmentalist gets ‘married’ to 1,000-year-old cypress tree in Mexico
Peruvian activist and actor Richard Torres contracted matrimony with Mexico’s famous 1,000-year-old Arbol del Tule, or Tule Tree, in an Inca ceremony replete with incense, grains and conch shells.
The ritual began Sunday around 11:30 a.m. in the presence of dozens of environmentalists and inhabitants of the Oaxaca town of Santa María del Tule, most of whom had no idea why the man was kissing and “marrying” the tree, a type of cypress whose trunk, at nearly 140 feet around, has the largest diameter in the world.
The wedding was part of the “Marry a tree, save your oxygen” project, whose mission is to stop deforestation around the world, and has already been initiated in Peru, Colombia and Argentina.
“Stop the hand that cuts down trees. I condemn this genocide and ask the president of Mexico to halt the destruction,” the environmentalist said during the ceremony.
There’s no word yet on where the happy couple is planning to honeymoon.
