What do you prefer, a countryside covered with forests (many trees), or a countryside covered with farms and agricultural use of the land (few trees)?

I prefer forests. Not that I have a problem with farmland, but I'd rather walk through the woods than across a field. I like trees.

I live in the Pacific Northwest but I'm partial to wide open spaces. I'll take the prairie over forests any day.

As far back in the woods as you can get. Never liked open spaces.

I like forests, even though for most of my life I haven't lived in a forested area. Farms aren't as pretty to me, plus they seem to be worse for my allergies. Although with forests you sometimes have to deal with ticks so I suppose there's pluses and minuses either way.

Are we talking about the neat upper mid-west German farms(Wisconsin), or the lazy unkempt farms everywhere else?

If you're talking strictly of where I would go in order to enjoy the sights and vacation, I think forests are better than farms. Farms can look pretty in their own way but as far as having a good nature experience I think a forest is better.

I guess farms aren't popular? I love farm land because it's so nice to walk down a road surrounded by nothing but corn. Love it!
