DUMFRIES, SCOTLAND - NOVEMBER 29: Workers at Glaisters Farm near Dumfries harvest this year's crop of Christmas trees as they prepare for the festive season on November 29, 2016 in Dumfries, Scotland. With Christmas fast approaching, thousands of British grown trees will be sold across the country with 80% of the trees being the Nordman FIR and around 10-15% Norway Spruce, and the remainder are lesser known varieties.

Yes, it’s true, women in Mexico have started the “Marry A Tree” movement but the reason why might surprise you.

Dating can go horribly wrong and cause some people to want to be single forever, but that’s not why these women in Mexico are marrying trees. The women who started this trend are activists who are trying to raise awareness for illegal logging. Illegal logging is also known as “clearing the land” and it’s happening in San Jacinto Amilpas, Mexico.

The “Marry A Tree” ceremonies are meant to honor and protect the environment.
