The activists are aiming to marry trees to take a stand against illegal environmental practices that lead to logging and the threat of extinction in Mexico, according to the New York Post.
Forests cover about one-third of Mexico’s territory, and Oaxaca, one of five US states, was severely damaged by deforestation by criminal groups.
“Marriage from a tree is a means of protest,” says activist Dolores Lissigui. “We need to stop the extermination of our land every day, every minute, every second.”
The ritual of marriage to trees within the Badani organization began as a means of giving thanks to the earth for the natural resources it provides to its human population, but it later developed into a symbolic wedding.
While the tradition of “marrying a tree” is not binding on the bride legally, because it is impossible to marry a tree, but some activists are seriously committed to it.

“Marriage from a tree is a means of protest,” explains one of the women activists, Dolores Lisigui. “We need to stop the extermination of Mother Earth every day, every minute, every second,” Yahoo Lifestyle said.
During the ceremony, the women promised to take care of the trees so as not to cut or die. The artist and activist Richard Torres of Peru organized the wedding tree from a tree as a kind of attraction to keep trees and not cut them.
During the ceremony, the farmer threw leaves instead of sweets and chocolates, allowing each bride to kiss the tree as a kind of custom to take care of her afterwards. “In this way we magnify, pay attention to and care for the value of trees in our lives,” Torres said.
Torres, leader of the Peruvian Green Hearts movement, said many trees had been cut and he wanted to save the rest. He plans to organize similar wedding parties in other countries in an attempt to save thousands of tree breeds before they are cut or died.
