Ron Jeremy, famous for a number of things but mostly for what he carries around in his pants, took to Twitter on Saturday, saying that utility Con Edison was going cut down a tree that was planted in New York in 1953. The tweet includes a 2018 photo of Jeremy hugging the tree.

Reason behind Ron’s love of this particular tree is because, as stated in his Twitter post above, it was a tree that his father planted on the day that Jeremy was born.

Jeremy, who has been staying at a Hollywood hotel during the coronavirus pandemic, told the New York Daily News that a neighbour let him know the trunk was wrapped in yellow tape last week.

“I looked after that tree all my life. They tried to chop the tree down years ago but I wouldn’t let them,” Jeremy said. “I even belted myself to the tree.”

The tweet quickly garnered attention, with one person rallying others to “save Ron’s wood”.

The tree is on city property and the Parks Department can choose to remove it, according to Con Edison. It is up to the city to decide whether to remove the tree to avoid any potential damage it may cause to surrounding power lines.
