Though born in the 60s, I was a little too young to really remember the movement of peace and love that characterised this decade. But, some of you may remember it. You may even have participated in its Summer of Love.
Well, this year, we're offering everyone the chance to experience the 60s spirit, because we've just launched our 'Summer of Hugs'. But, rather than just loving one another, we're asking you to love trees - ancient ones in particular - and to show your appreciation by getting out there and hugging them. I'm doing it and I don't mind being called a tree hugger...in fact, I do it as often as I can!
Of course, it's all in aid of our Ancient Tree Hunt. Hugging is a really easy way of measuring the girth of old trees to establish if they're ancient or not.
Since we launched the Hunt last year, we've already received more than 20,000 tree records but we suspect there are still many more ancient trees waiting to be found.
So, why not show some love and take part in our Summer of Hugs?
