THIS IS WHY I CAN'T STAND THE WEST COAST!!!!!!! all the trees on the EAST COAST are mostly Deciduous Tree Forests!!!!!!


WAY MORE BEAUTIFUL SCENIC SCENERY ON THE EAST COAST!!!!!

What about the aspens in Colorado?

Im sorry if i ticked some people off with my outlandish writing...it's just part of me wants to expose the Ugliness of the Western US at least in my opinion and i know my opinions are super radical...lol about the aspens of Colorado Unfortunately Colorado is still a Dry Climate which means a way better chance of wildfires next summer I understand that wildfires are a natural event but it's just i mean... it's something that would fittingly only happen in the Western US. Now hopefully that doesn't happen and the Aspens of Colorado are pretty neat in the Wintertime too... it's just it's almost all the same trees.

There are forests around Los Angeles right now, so I'm not that worried.

Technology is saving trees because everything is becoming electronic and using less paper (email, ebooks, etc.).

Djames9 has got to get out of Fresno a bit more. Here in western Montana there are loads of aspen, ash, cottonwood, alder, willow and more deciduous trees, not to mention the only deciduous conifer tree, the western larch (tamarack). There are more conifers than pine here also. There is Ponderosa pine (yellow pine), white pine, lodgepole pine, red fir (Douglas), pee fir (not the real name but you don't want to burn it), spruce, hemlock, red cedar, juniper and lots more. Fires in the west are crucial to the health of western forestlands. If you think the west is ugly why are you living in the west at all, let alone a cesspool piece of crap town like Fresno ?

Wow I think the Sierras are loaded with trees besides conifers. For example on the east side of the Sierras you see scenes like this with aspens, cottonwoods and poplars.

dude ive traveled a lot... maybe not as much as you... i mean im only 20 but my point is...i just prefer Deciduous Trees.... that's just it... there a lot more beautiful in my opinion...

ive traveled to 29 states By the way...

also..yes the pictures are nice...and it's neat to see.. it's just there not as densely forested as the Eastern US Forests..and it seems there like not as packed.. which i think kinda ruins the whole landspace scenery..... that's all im saying..
