Around 40 trees with scars have become popular decorations, painted with vivid images of animals at the Zoological and Botanical Garden in Changchun, capital of Northeast China's Jilin province.

Feng Shuxuan, 56, an experienced worker at this garden, has painted these images based on the shapes of the scars and direction of the branches, and has created various animal images like wolves, owls, tigers and giraffes, according to a report from ifeng.com, a news portal.

"I usually choose those trees with scars or holes, and then paint after polishing, padding and carving," said Feng, who has worked here since 1987. "The painting can also prevent the trees from losing water."
