Tree hugger determined to save tree!

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw a tree hugger.

Treehugger

The small tree had wrapped itself around the larger tree.

I pointed it out to the tall person who smiled and said that it was very interesting but he also told me that it might be better if I did not refer to it as a “tree hugger” as the term is sometimes used in a derogatory or mocking way when referring to environmentalists, especially those who advocate for the preservation of forests and sometimes chain themselves to trees to prevent them from being felled.

Oh. So I should have referred to the small tree as an environmentalist?
