Nasa maps trees of America for the first time and shows forest covers a THIRD of the U.S. | Daily Mail Online

This one is interesting.

Some pics of Cleveland, as stated, nicknamed the "Forest City". Not the best maybe, but I would say it's up there.

If one were to look at a map of tree canopy in the Cleveland area, particularly in East Side Neighborhoods and Suburbs I think it would be pretty impressive to them.

I'm curious to know Oklahoma City's tree coverage percentage (a quick Google search was to no avail). I think it surprises some people that OKC isn't dry and barren. Here's a picture I took several years ago:

I love the shady streets of older parts of cities in the Southeast. With our brutal summers, I've never understood the trend toward mowing down all the mature trees in newer developments and replacing them with cookie cutter Crape Myrtles.

I must say Atlanta is superb but I jsut don't feel the real attraction to it. Most of Atlanta can have rather boring tract housing but on the north side yes it is heavily forested but idk just not as good as I think Savannah philly or Cleveland. I'm really liking Cleveland but I do notice it has the same issues as Atlanta but I think with the Hungarian population large saved trees and being named thr forest city I think it takes the cake as the most forested/tree lined. I would say Atlanta close second and philly close third imho. But really it's so close

Here's the best Pic of Pittsburgh that illustrates just how Green and Lush this place is.
