“I’d like to go by climbing a birch tree~
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more,
But dipped its top and set me down again.
That would be good both going and coming back.
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.”

~ Robert Frost

Here’s a little known fact about me.

I’m a tree hugger.

No, I’ve never chained myself to a tree to save it from being cut down or went on a hunger strike to protest deforestation.  But I’ve been hugging trees ever since I was a child.

We lived in the country when I was a kid, and in the summer when the city kids were riding their bikes to the pool and buying ice cream from the ice cream man…

I was was climbing trees.

And that’s a lot like tree hugging. 🙂

  1. Never climbed a birch tree, Angie! Only climbed one or two trees when I was a kid. Wasn’t as adventurous as I am now. But I do love trees and it breaks my heart when I see one cut down. My neighbor had a beautiful maple tree planted near our lot lines. A couple years ago he decided to have it cut down because “it was getting too big”! What? That is what trees do, get big. And give lots of shade. I was sick over it. I told the tree that it was going to happen and that it should let it’s soul rise up and out of the tree and it would be okay. Silly, maybe, but I tho’t the tree ought to know.

    The birches are especially lovely trees. In our neighborhood a birch tree was planted in almost every front yard when the houses were built. This was in the sixties and most of them didn’t survive. There are several that are quite large now and seemingly healthy, but I’ve heard or read that they are a bit finicky to grow. The bark was used for writing by early peoples and it’s nice that it is being appreciated again.

  2. I’ve never climbed a birch, but I grew up climbing trees just like you. Recently, I told my kids I could still do it and climbed the tree in our backyard (I’m 53)! I had to have a little help coming down.?

  3. I have 3 river birch trees in my yard and they are my favorite of all trees! These items are lovely!!
