Treely beloved: A man has married a tree

Meet the barking mad environmentalist who has taken his ‘tree hugger’ moniker to another level.

Richard Torres, who was described in one report as a Johnny Depp Doppelganger, married the tree in the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aries on Sunday, KXAN reports. 

Dressed in a white suit and blue hat, the Peruvian actor invited guests to perform readings at the ceremony in one of the city’s main parks.

The activist read his vows out loud and was given a ring before he kissed the tree several times to make the marriage official.

He said the unusual wedding was staged to highlight environmental issues and he now plans to bring his unique style of activism to countries throughout Latin America.
