“A hug is an amazing thing.
It’s just the perfect way
to show the love
but can’t find the words to say.”
—Johnny Ray Ryder
“If the tree doesn’t hug you back, it’s not a problem with the tree, it’s a problem with your heart.” — Donald L. Hicks

Symbolizing life and love of the natural environment, Tree Hug was created by Parisian artist Christophe Guinet as a tribute to the invaluable ecological benefits of trees. Set in Annecy, France, the work features castings of arms which have been “vegetated” and installed around tree trunks. ~ Photo by Jan Logozzo
