The Trees

sunny -1 °C

The Chinese people are devoted to the many gardens that are in and around the cities and towns. The street scapes are extraordinary. One thing I find fascinating is the care of trees. The trees are stabilized with bamboo or timber frames. Some trees are roped. Others are painted. I am told the tree is roped to make it tree stronger and force the growth upwards. They are painted to keep them warm in the cold winter and snow.

I have never heard of this practice anywhere else before.
