Tree Hugger

It’s alright, I’m not going to let anyone make toilet paper out of you!

Squirrels are the world’s original tree huggers.  As an arboreal species that relies on our forests (even suburban “forests”) to survive, they have an active interest in preserving our woodlands.  Squirrels are widely credited with being the main planters of trees where they thrived throughout history due to their forgetful nature when it comes to burying their nuts.

This week’s Saturday Squirrel at the park has declared himself the guardian of this recently planted tree.  Perhaps he’s staking his claim to nesting rights when it grows taller…

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Aw, I can almost see the tiny handcuffs so he doesn’t get dragged away to make room for the chainsaws…

  6. Tree hugger? The hooligans in my ‘Hood tend prefer stripping tender bark off new trees. So much for Sciuridian environmentalism.
