Yep I hear you on that However, last year it was covered in 100 inches of snow for 3-5 months so we wont miss that. We saw alot of nice areas around Lynx lake and the outskirts of town that have mature trees and pines like here.

I will try to attach a pix of my home in Chino Valley. Not all of Chino is dry and treeless, as you can see!

95% of the trees in PV and CV are NOT native and have been transplanted by people. Certain parts of Prescott are more conducive to tree growth because of the higher elevations.

Non-native trees can survive out in PV and CV, it just needs constant watering. It's the watering the keeps them alive. If left to the "natural", they would die.

PV & CV, if left "natural" would be quite barren and would resemble a wasteland.

Prescott is, by far, the nicest of the area.

Naturally, without human interference, those trees would only grow near seasonal creeks or in low flood prone areas. You will not find native trees like that in PV & CV growing out in the middle of nowhere. The only reason they are there TODAY, is because of irrigation and mankind planting those trees there.

Left to nature, those trees would not be there or survive because of the lack of water.

Scenery-wise, PV & CV are the barren wide-open plains where the antelope roam. Antelope don't roam in the trees & forests of Prescott. If PV & CV keep building everywhere, they will make the antelope extinct. Antelope need wide-open, flat, treeless plains. What CV & PV are today and should remain that way.
