^^Albuquerque is green for the New Mexican desert. To say it's almost as green as Pittsburgh, and greener than Denver, is a joke.

Nobody said that. Not me. Not the previous poster. Not the USDA Forest Service. But, I agree. Albuquerque isn't nearly as green as Pittsburgh. Very few cities are.

Hmmm. Really? I've never been to Sioux Falls, but I have been to several nearby cities like Fargo, Sioux City, Des Moines, Mankato, and Bismarck. And, while none of those cities are void of trees, they don't really hold a candle to the cities in the Deep South and along the Atlantic Coast.

The Black Hills near Sioux Falls are black because of all the trees that cover them.

Sioux Falls and the Black Hills are at opposite sides of South Dakota. Are you thinking of Rapid City maybe?

Oh, whoops, yep. The last time I was in SD was when I was 8, so sorry if I'm a little mixed up on the geography.

I think it's a little goofy to outright argue who has more trees. Interesting thread nonetheless. Treed cities are great. This is one of my favorite streets in the country, and there are tons more like it all over South Charlotte. Queens Rd West:
