(Scroll down for video) A man who is an avid tree lover and an environmental activist, married a tree in a public ceremony.

We’ve all heard of tree huggers, but this activist in Colombia, took tree loving to a whole new level on Sunday in Bogota.

The man’s guests gathered in Bogota’s National Park, to witness the actor, who is originally from Peru, tie the knot with his beloved tree.

During the ceremony, young girls placed fruits and vegetables at the base of a tree as offerings. Richard Torres said that he hoped the wedding ceremony would draw attention to the problems of the environment.

This is not the first time that Torres married a tree. Last year he married a tree in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
