It's that feeling of appreciation in your heart when you see a beautiful tree or take a walk in a park. That love is first and foremost for being a Tree Protector. Yes, that feeling of love might even make you want to put your hands on the tree, "hug" it, and share a moment of gratitude.

I touch trees all the time. There is something special about that tactile sensation. It brings you closer. It's intimate. Don't be afraid to look silly or be judged. Those who would judge don't know what they are missing.

If you are already a tree lover, you know what I mean.

If you WANT to be a tree lover and a Tree Protector, just open your heart to the trees. Send them caring feelings and good wishes. That way, they will ‘know’ that you are on their side, that they have an ally. And you will feel good in the warmth of your own loving feelings.
