I’m hugging a tree because I can hang my hammock on a Sunday afternoon and read while listening to the birds chirp at Bayfront Park.
I’m hugging a tree because I can have fun trying to climb a tree that is short enough for me.
I am hugging a tree because it gives us fresh air to breath and a cool shady place to sit when it is hot outside. The wood from trees builds a roof over our heads to keep us safe. And we can plant new trees to give back (fresh air, birds, wood to build).
