Tree-hugger is an interactive light installation composed of a series of wires with hundreds of green LED's, illuminating a large, mature red oak tree along the trail. Visitors can touch four sensors on the tree trunk to trigger a display of a slow, upward and outward "pulse." All four sensors can only be triggered if the entire trunk is "hugged" by a single person or several participants acting together.
