Save a Tree

Leave a comment

While visiting in Thailand, I learned of a method used to save and protect trees from being cut down. Buddhist monks would bless cloths and these clothes would be tied around tree trunks. The people of Thailand wouldn’t think to cut a tree with a blessed cloth. While walking in the small mountain town of Chiang Dao, I saw many examples of this. These trees, left to grow for many more years, were incredible.
