"Grabtree?"  "Hanging in there?"

I love to climb trees so "grabbing" a tree, or at least a tree limb of
small enough size to put my hand around, has been a source of joy.
I have definitely in this context often been grabbing a tree and "hanging
in there", quite literally.  For dear life!

This might render me a "tree hugger," in the popular stereotype.  But being
a tree "grabber" connotes... Never mind!
