Usually an upper class college student who is attempting to rebel. They are usually vegetarian which causes them to be skinny pale and sickly. They are also usually seen sporting MAC computers and VW beetles with pollyphonics spree blaring in the radio. They claim to be environmentalist but tend to just be mental. They enjoy pushing their crazy beliefs on people, not for the planets sake but to make everyone as miserable as they are. also see hippie

Fuckers that tie themselves to trees that the logging companies planted. They are the reason why nobody can have nice cars because they "pollute". What they don't realize is that not enough people have them to make an impact. Not only that, they take SUV's and bury them, even though the battery acids leak and gas, further polluting the enviroment.
Tree Huggers will never let anybody have nice cars.

Tree huggers are people who aspire to live in trees for months on end in order to save the trees from being cut down to make room for commercial endeavers by the owners of the property on which the tree(s) are located. Their environmental activism is often funded for by the capitalism of their parents.
Myra is going to live in a tree for six months while her parents pay her student loans and credit card bills. She's such a good little activist.

A person who measures the DBH (diameter at breast height)of a tree before it is harvested. When they use their foresters tape to measure trees, they wrap the tape around the tree which makes them look like they are hugging the tree.
Marcus looked like he was hugging a tree when he was measuring the DBH before it was harvested. He is a real tree hugger.

An environmentalist who attempts to save a tree by wrapping their body around it. Most are completely idiotic or completely brain washed. Also, they don't think of all the meat, plants, trees, water, etc. that has been killed or polluted by their mere existence. They should do the world a favor and create a human mulch pile out of themself.
Headline: A tree hugger was killed today in a futile attempt to save a freakin tree. Don't fret, hedid make something of his life, mulch.
