    Where I live, in NW of US, being called a ‘tree hugger’ is a disparaging remark.
    I love your sign. It makes me want to make some for the woods around here!

      Well it’s only disparaging for those who feel that celebrating trees is something you can do to excess. I’m not sure about that!

      That would be a wonderful idea.

    Isn’t it wonderful how few words are needed to say a lot! And I can’t help noting another tribute to the humble but ever picturesque twine. Is it everywhere and I just never noticed?

    “Have you hugged a tree today?” Indeed in the US tree hugging can mean different things to different people but hey, trees are people too!

      I don’t hug them very often, although some of the ancient ones in Sherwood forest are irresistible. The oldest is fenced off but the others are distinctly huggable.

      Regarding tree huggers, I’d be happy to be insulted that way. I wouldn’t put it top of my insults received list, put it that way.

      It was a marketing campaign by a company that specialises in unusual places to stay. They put these messages on interesting old or well known trees all around the country and encouraged people to post pictures of themselves hugging a tree. I love marketing when it’s a win-win experience, which it always should be.
