A German man has been arrested after a marriage guidance counsellor advised him to run around naked shouting at trees.

Dieter Braun, 43, from Recklinghausen said the stress release technique had worked perfectly until he was arrested.

He told police that venting his anger on the trees had stopped him shouting at his wife.

"If I didn't go to the woods and scream at the trees then my marriage would probably be over," he said.

He added taking his clothes off at the same time made him feel more relaxed.

"For me it's a type of relaxation therapy. Feeling the breeze on my naked skin really calms me down."

Questions that inquiring minds want to know:

1. Did the trees give a statement to the police?

2. Did they sign a complaint form?

3. If a tree is stripped of all its bark, is it nude and in violation of a law?

4. Was it a crime against nature.

5. Did he 'knock wood' instead of 'knocking on wood'.

Good questions Vicktor... I think it's best we just leave it alone I am not sure I want to get to the root of the problem by branching out into those areas.
