 Have you hugged a tree today?


Trees….where would we be without them? They do so much for us. 


  1. They provide shelter for many creatures, including humans.
  2. They let us dress them up in silly ways without complaining.

3. They offer a communication post for dogs who want to leave their mark.

4.They are graceful about aging and don’t seem to mind it.









5. They teach us how to love fruit!

6. They offer a communication post for dogs who want to leave their mark.

7. They open their arms to us and offer shade from the summer heat .

8.Every year they unfailingly lay down their leaves to provide cover for dormant plants, warmth and a safe haven for critters

9. They teach us to overcome fear. “Betcha can’t climb that tree!” "Betcha I can!"

10. They become a great scratching post for bear, elk, deer. *See below*!

11. They always let us take their picture without complaining and don’t sue us when it goes viral!

12. They bring changing beauty all year long.






















13..They willingly give up their lives so that those of us who choose to cut them down can do so without them making us feel guilty.

14. Every single part of them is useful.

15.They give us a place to hide things. 

16.They help us celebrate many occasions.

17.They give us solace.

18.They have given us a way to tell our stories through time by writing on their “parts”. 

19. They wave to us in the wind!

20.They grow in their own way and don’t worry about what others think.

 21.They give us so much more than they ask from us!

22.They are a willing participant with the games we play as children…(remember Hide&Seek?)

 23.They continue to sustain us through the centuries, no matter how badly we treat them.


24.We make money off them and they never ask for a percentage. 

 25.They create bridges for animals to swing across the forests easily.

 26.They love us all unconditionally.

 Once again, I ask you, Have you hugged a tree today??

Hi Roy Kelley,

I am a tree hugger and love trees. Your pictures are very nice. We had the deadly disease 'bark bettle' that killed so many in our forests of the San Bernardino Mountains but the loggers have torn so many of them down and hopefully the sprouts will be bug free.
