Everywhere in Thailand, it can be easily found a tree wrapped with colorful fabrics. Thai people believe that the old tree has a spirit inside of it.

The tree with spirit shall not be vut without warning the spirit in order to let him find another tree.

Also sometimes to protect forest against logging, some monks ordain trees and wrapped them up with a thin orange cloth. Trees were then sacred. For Bouddhist people it was now impossible to harm the trees. However, sometimes officials used another monk to defrock the trees.
