Trees That Do Weights??… What’s Next? A Bench That Can Bench Press?

During our Legoland Germany visit I saw something I’ve never seen before… the trees had weights on them.

At first I wondered if they were bells or lights, but no, I think they are definitely weights.

Probably they are meant to train the tree branches into a direction that won’t poke visitors in the eyes, but on second thoughts, these branches were too high for that.

Now I’m trying to remember how close they may have been to the Legoland rail way line, maybe it’s so that the passengers (sitting higher up than the walking public) don’t get scratched … or maybe it’s the train that they don’t want scratched.

Now that I think of it I’m not even certain that these trees were by the train line at all… I seem to remember they were around the mini-Lego country / city area, and the train goes behind a hedge there. Have you ever seen tree weights or things that look like this before? If so could you please maybe let me know  what they are and why they are being used? And No, I don’t think the trees are doing a little working out on the sly! (well I might believe it if I can catch the benches doing a little bench pressing!).
