Today is the perfect day to hug a tree. We are already celebrating Arbor Day, and it also happens to be Hug a Friend Day. Trees our are friends, therefore we should hug them. Simple as that. We should also protect them, care for them, and plant them whenever we can, but a hug is a great place to start. Trees give us so much, and it is so easy to give this one little thing back.
