The 38-year-old hammered nails into branches and trunks, and painted graffiti on them.
Gardeners, in Paris, called police on Monday after the man was spotted baying at the top of a large chestnut tree on the Champs de Mars.
The unnamed man told officers that he was "trying to rid the trees of demon forces" before being taken into custody, pending psychiatric reports.
No could accuse him of being a tree hugger. :D
