Explain this 'disguise'

What was this Manchester, New Hampshire bank robber thinking?

“He had tree branches duct-taped on his person, as if he was trying to camouflage himself in the woods,” [Manchester Police Detective Sgt. Ernie] Goodno said.

Apparently he didn’t realize there are no more elm trees on Elm Street.

Despite his indiscrete getup, the robber got away with an undisclosed amount of cash — and all his leaves intact.

The police investigation attracted the attention of several curious onlookers both outside the branch and driving along Elm Street, as well as a few bank customers who had hoped to make transactions.

Images of the robber on bank cameras were of little help, said Capt. Richard Tracy. “You can’t see much, except for the leaves around his head,” Tracy said last night. “There are no leads yet. But we’re trying to pick him up in time for recycling.”
