Meet the Dendrophobe!
Deeply terrified of trees.
Hence the stump:
Now, we here at PterodactylPants love and adore trees and do not condone chopping them down in any way. We appreciate trees in all forms, including leaning, swaying, stumped, gnarly, knotted, dead or dying, evergreen, sapling, leaf-less, or leaf-full.
This guy just prefers the stumps. He enjoys sitting on them. He enjoys that they are relatively closer to his stature.
An Arboreal Haiku:
Hay rides are dandy,
But please don’t ask me to join
in apple picking.
