This tree died of love ……
The hotel is managed by the local tourist department. The manager under the pressure to improve its financial health opened this balcony to public for a small admission charge. Here the visitors could enact their own version of Romeo and Juliet.
It became a favorite stop of newly-weds and other victims of Cupid.
The couples would cavort up and down the balcony or run around the tree and before departing would carve their names and other symbols of their love on the tree trunk.
In a few years, the poor tree lost a thick ring of its bark. Subsequently, it was under constant attack by insects and other predators. Finally it succumbed.
It needed a little understanding.
