Can you all look at the photos in the below link and tell me if you have seen any neighborhoods, counties, or areas around Louisville that have lots and lots of trees like what is in the photos? Or anything that is kind of close? Thanks! And don't say Jefferson Memorial Forest!

Pooh! Can't correct the title. That should be "sections of the city" ...

You obviously have not been to the Louisville area. Trees and forests are abundant in this area. I live in Prospect - close to the river, many streams, creeks, waterfalls and dense forests. Areas like this exist throughout much of Kentucky. Our subdivision and many others in Prospect are full of mature trees and lots of them.

No, I haven't been to Louisville yet. Pooh! I am researching areas for retirement, and lots of trees are a requirement - especially subdivisions or areas where the houses are mixed in with the trees, and the trees are everywhere just about obscuring the houses in the summer - like in the link.

I posted the link for reference because some folks are from arid parts of the country, and for them, grass makes a location very lush.

What are the most heavily wooded housing subdivisions that you all have seen as you drive about? I have a list of five Louisville subdivisions where the houses look like they are in the woods, and I know that can't be right. I want to add to my list and research the area and its housing prices.

Thanks!

Any part of Anchorage would work for you.

Hunting Creek, Fox Harbor are both in Prospect - lots of trees. Peewee Valley - tons of beautiful trees. Indian Hills subdivision in Louisville - tons of trees. If isn't difficult to find a home with a lot of mature trees. Don't worry about it - there are plenty.

Half of Jefferson County and almost all of Oldham County look like that or better.

Thanks folks. The real estate sites give one the ability to search on subdivision names, so I'll look into the ones you all provided.

01 = Downtown, Old Lou, Shively, West Lou
02 = Butchertown, Cherokee Park, Highlands
03 = Clifton, Crescent Hill, St. Matthews
04 = Pleasure Ridge Park, Valley Station, Shively
05 = Auburndale, Fairdale, Iroquois Park
06 = Buechel, Highview, Okolona, Fern Creek
07 = Fern Creek, Hikes Point, Jeffersontown
08 = Hurstborne, Middletown & more
09 = Anchorage, Glenview, Lyndon, Prospect
20 = Oldham County N of I-71

Many thanks.

There is a condo/townhouse neighborhood down Rose Island Road that looks very similar to some of those pictures, anyone know what I'm talking about?
