Coin-covered Wish Trees

Superstition is universal. People believe that a person suffering from an illness could hammer a coin into a tree trunks and the tree would take the illness away, but if someone removed the coin, they themselves would become ill. Many people in the UK do it even today.

In order to harness this superstition for the betterment of environment, a number of wish trees have been set up to make a wish for the environment. At the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Centre at Balloch in Scotland there are many such trees. People make their wish for and pledge to help the environment and tie the wish label to the tree.
