We're getting off topic people. The topic was "Do you find trees growing through concrete disturbing?".

Not an illusion of nature at all. Anything that people do is natural; one can't seperate people and what they do from nature.

I'd have to think about this statement a bit. Some of my sick, disgusting lusts that I have toward the fairer sex definitely could be classified as unnatural.

Alright, check it out. I learned this in second grade: trees breathe carbon dioxide. Tyler Durden said that "Oxygen gets you high." Except this isn't true for trees... If you're a tree, carbon dioxide gets you high. There's so much CO2 in the air, especially in cities, that the trees should be thanking us for putting them in the urban jungles. They're probably high as kites all the time.

And the more CO2 in the air, the more trees will thrive. And that in turn will lead to more oxygen for humans and other oxygen breathing mammals and creatures.

That is too funny.lol I guess this is more of a comedy thread.

As WILWradio said trees do great in urban areas.

I think the trees need some privacy, imagine being surrounded by people 24 hours a day. Trees should be in forests with other trees, not on the sidewalk where people spit on them all day and empty out their coffee/fountain drinks on them before they toss them in the trash can. Also in my city there are trash cans right next to the trees... seriously putting a trash can right next to a tree is pretty disrespectful especially since the tree doesn't even use it.
