More often than not, the term ‘treehugging’ calls to mind the activities of the environmentally conscious – eco-warriors who chain themselves to trees in a bid to stop them being destroyed, or simply those with a love of all things green.

Perhaps they’re sending us a message about the importance of protecting the environments they inhabit?
