Miley Cyrus shared some photos of her recent visit to Joshua Tree National Park, and while the pics have been popular with her fans, some feel that she was being ignorant. According to Mojave Desert Land Trust Executive Director Geary Hund, because Joshua trees have shallow roots, extra weight can cause damage to the branches. He added, "We ask that Miley Cyrus consider her status as a public figure and remove this photo from her social media accounts in order to educate others and to prevent potential damage to Joshua trees," Christine Pfranger, owner of Coyote Corner, said, "Love them, hug them, kiss them even, but never climb or hang from them," adding, "Our advice to everyone if you do see a post on social media or come across someone potentially doing harm to a tree, approach them with kind education and not shame. Kindness goes a long way."
