I would think that Atlanta wins this one, followed by some other southern City like Charlotte.

Yeah. I though of Atlanta first, but it's really that whole region. All three of those areas look similar, but I guess that it's more surprising in Atlanta because it's bigger and thought of as more urban.

This isn't a vote for the top metro in tree coverage, but rather a poll about which metros you think have a lot of trees. You can vote for more than one.

I voted for:

Atlanta
Charlotte
Raleigh-Durham
Piedmont Triad
Pittsburgh
Providence
Boston
Washington D.C.
Baltimore
Nashville
New Orleans
Jacksonville
Seattle
Portland
Richmond
Norfolk/Va. Beach
Birmingham
