As I fly I like to look out the window as the plane drops into the Airport. The window seat gives me a better perspective of the look and feel of the city I am traveling to. One thing I really notice is the number of trees the metro area of a city has. Some Cities were built in a naturally forested setting but most of the trees were cut down when the area developed and few were replaced. While others are beautiful with tons of large trees all over town.

Does your town have enough trees and which City (metro area) has the most trees?

I think Atlanta does.

As for my city, I don't really pay attention to the trees, lol but I think it's doing a good job.

Houston is also very green. The humidity and the coastline help out with the moisture and rain.

St. Louis is fairly green as well. There are forests surrounding here everywhere you go, especially beginning in the Ozark foothills. You get this mountains of forests as well as many deciduous forests further north. The neighborhood where I live used to be a forest, for crying out loud LOL....trees, trees, trees, and more trees everywhere you look.

Seattle is amazingly green, I've only been there twice but both times I am absolutely amazed at how much parkland and green space there is interspersed throughout the entire city. It makes me jealous.

Seattle iand Houston are green. BUT...I think DC and Atlanta are in a world of their own. Very very green and you think you're not even in a major metropolitan area if you visited these two areas.

I have no pictures of DC but I do have them of Atlanta.

DC is very very similar.
