Unbelievable Money Trees: Hundreds of Coins Stuck into Tree Trunk

These money trees aren’t any kind of art, but old customs only happened in several wooded areas around the UK. While with hundreds of coins stuck into the tree trunk, the effect is stunning. According to the report, passersby have been stopping for decades (if not centuries), meticulously hammering small denomination coins intro trees. Most of the trees seem to be in and around Cumbria and Portmeirion. The practice might date back to the early 1700s in Scotland where ill people stuck florins into trees with the idea that the tree would take away their sickness. Not sure how many people get cured by this way, but we do get those incredible money trees left. And somehow, I did feel sorry for those trees. It must be painful for them to have so many coins in their bodies. [source]
