Coin Trees of the UK

That's not bark, but coins driven into the surface of a tree! In several locations in the UK, people have stuck coins into "wishing trees". Colossal has a picture roundup of these oddly lovely trees and The Guardian provides some historical information about the practice, which apparently dates back to at least the Eighteenth Century.
