Is there an explanation for the bindings on the trees? I would think this might damage their bark somehow. But then if it's ordinary dyed string it likely will deteriorate before that - we hope.
Certainly makes a curious photo.
here in Germany there are young and not so very young ladies, who knit or crochet real "coats" for trees, very colourful pieces.
it's a little bit batty-batty (;-)) but looks real funny.
the trees cherish it of course in these "dark times" ;-)
regrettably the "coats" are stolen very often.
let's all be a little bit cuckoo in everyday life.
only 5 minutes a day :-)
Love the coloured stripes. On trees and sweater. :)
