From a creative idea to a unique culture, trees in Korea are put "colorful sweaters" on when winters come. In addition to the purpose of bringing warmth to the trees in winter, this idea creates a unique art space bringing joy to passersby, especially in the midst of the gloomy times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wearing clothing for trees is also considered an effective measure against pests. In the winter, bugs will often enter warm places on the trunk to shelter. So when people take off the sweater, they can find worms and kill them, helping the plant to live longer.
Many sweaters are also ordered from centers for disabled and elderly people. Therefore, this meaningful activity contributes to creating jobs for people in need.
