    I'm not the ONLY one who does it........right? Don't you just love going into a field sitting under a large tree and reading or sleeping or something...it totally makes me feel like I am living in the renassiance or something, with fairytales and stuff!

    Ok... I finally admit it. I'm an actual tree-hugger and I don't care what anyone else thinks :p

  5. I don't hug trees, but I do pat them sometimes, especially when I'm walking down the street. I like to let them know I appreciate them. Occasionally I'll even say things like, "How ya doin', man? Everything alright?"

    Trees are awsome! They are just like people ... they all have a very unique and interesting history. Just like you, I like to sit under very big, very old trees and imagine all of the things they have seen in their lifetime. So I would definitley consider myself a ....
     
  8. i have literally hugged a tree before...I get a lot of shit for doing so (my mate mate says shrub shagger instead of tree hugger for instance) but who cares? tress are fantastic, and hugging them is great :)

    My parents have this amazing oak tree in their front yard, it's like a hundred years old, it's so beautiful. I love resting under it and reading... I could do that for hours.
     
  18. trees are awesome, but ppl keep cuting them down. my parents back yard used to be filled w/ trees and i used to love sitting back there among them reading a book or just to relax and breathe for a moment, I came home from college one day and almost all of them were cut down and a house was going up, which I dont understand why they cut down so many between the two yards, seems like keeping a bit of a tree border would be nice for privacy. It made me very sad when i saw this, my parents have planted some more trees back there, but they're smaller b/c they havent grown yet and it doesnt have that "reading a book under the big tree" feeling to it.

    also when i was in ashville, nc a little while ago, there was this huge forest area right near unc-ashville and it was beautfiul, i was actually thinking as we were entering the school that i wish i had some forest area that pretty near where i live (but instead they cut down what we do have) but later i was just walking around ashville trying to get to the post office and i ran into this random hippy guy who was walking home, (hes a strong environmentalist, doesnt even own a car, and a vegitarian, etc), it was really cool meeting this guy) but as we were walking (since we were going the same direction anyway) he was telling me about how the city is trying to get it approved to cut down that ENTIRE forest area to build a parking lot since the college has gained so many people lately, they are running out of places to park and if they don't build the lot, freshman wont be able to bring their cars to school w/ them...after he told me about this, i actually did start noticing the signs around the city lobbying against cutting down the trees. i dont see why freshman need cars on campus anyway, i was walking everywhere in that city while i was there, its a beautiful city to walk around...a lot of the colleges in nc dont let freshman have cars on campus anyway. i prob sound weird saying that tho b/c i had my car on campus for a little while as a freshman, but i ended up keeping it at my boyfriends apartment anyway, but thats besides the point :p i still think they should leave that forest there, it was sooo pretty, they have a walking path thru it that i walked on one afternoon wihle i was there and it was soo nice, i think college students need that sort of thing to relax from the stress of school, rather than being able to park their car

    I have had similar experiences... one of the most traumatic moments of my childhood was when i came home from school one day to find that all the bushes and trees down the bottom of the garden had been cut down to make room for a neighbour's house... i was inconsolable for days.
    Another was when i came home and saw that all the beautiful gum trees outside my window had been chopped down to stumps because the magpies were apparently being too pesky... well they never bothered me and i lived right next door!! for chrissakes... learn to carry a stick for protection against swooping birds, there's plenty on the ground! you don't need to cut down their homes! :mad:

    I talk to trees all the time and play music for the bush in my room. I think trees are have way more stuff going on than we think.
