Some Minnesotans don’t take issue with the label “tree hugger.” In fact, a few folks really um . . . “embrace” the term. The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum hopes to bring together all the most dedicated tree lovers for an actual tree hugging event this Friday. They’re hoping to break the world record for the largest tree hug. (Yup, there is such a thing.)

If more than 702 folks people show up, the record will be ours.
